Everyone has a life story, but how do we shape that story to make it compelling? Through inclass exercises, we will consider the art of the interview, life history methods, performance, and writing techniques to bring your life story alive. Please bring samples of interviews or works-in-progress to class. Tressa Berman, Ph.D., is an anthropologist and writer who has collected life histories and interviews as a fieldworker and oral historian for more than 25 years.
