Brown Bag (Oct 21):“The Ethics of Conducting Oral Histories for Humanities Research”

 Eileen Callahan, Institutional Review Board (IRB), College of Charleston, Avery Research Center, 12-1:15 pm.

Why do I need IRB clearance for my oral history research project? Eileen Callahan addresses student and faculty questions about the ethics of conducting and using oral histories of living subjects for academic humanities research at the College of Charleston. Oral history scholars at this presentation will also discuss their “in the field” experiences and challenges with developing interview projects that are both insightful and respectful of the needs and rights of their interview subjects.
