How to Capture Women's Stories Through Oral History Workshop Set
Distinctive Women in Hawaiian History, in cooperation with Bishop Museum present a community workshop

You can learn how to capture these life stories through oral history. At this day long workshop, learn how to conduct, record, transcribe, and edit an oral history interview. Also learn how to use gender-specific strategies to best bring out women's life experiences. For registration information go to:
