Summer School of Oral History, under the patronage of Faculty of Humanities of Charles University in Prague, aims to introduce students from all over the world to the newest trends and procedures of oral history, as well as to its theoretical aspects and practical impacts of new media and technology on oral history.

Through practical workshops we will show students how to conduct an oral history interview, how to analyze and interpret it, and also how to archive collected data. Our goal is to establish certain theoretical, methodological, ethical and archival standards of oral history.
