Contemporary theories about oral history as well as practical strategies for conducting oral history research are included in this collection of essays. General issues that arise during oral history research are covered in detail, including navigating confidentiality issues, transcribing from oral interviews to written form, and handling unique situations for populations such as indigenous peoples whose history may not have been recorded previously. Particular case studies highlight the rewards and challenges of documenting oral histories and offer insight into the kinds of marginalized experiences that can find voice through this research: productions of an amateur dramatic society, stories from a victim of child abuse, and the life stories of two lesbians.
