Because oral history interviews are personal interactions between human beings, they rarely conform to a methodological ideal. These reflections from oral historians provide honest and rigorous analyses of actual oral history practice that address the complexities of a human-centered methodology.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"By acknowledging the personal impact of doing oral history work, this valuable collection of reflections is a wonderful bridge among academic disciplines as well as for those of us who practice oral history outside of academia: all practitioners are important to include in these ethical and theoretical discussions." (Sady Sullivan, The Oral History Review, Vol. 44 (2), 2017)

' the essays in this collection reflect on those sensitive, uncomfortable and sometimes daunting moments in interviews that are usually left unmentioned. They show that the required skills of openness and patience can be gained only through practice and conscious critical evaluation of what we learn in theory. I found the essays wise and constructive in presenting the political, ethical and personal challenges that researchers face in interactions with subjects of their studies.' - LSE Review of Books Blog
