Volunteers are needed for analysing oral history interviews

Sprekende geschiedenis has taken the initiative to link different oral history collections around the concept of freedom. The idea is that interviews from the collections of the NIOD, the Netherlands Veterans Institute, the Ongekend Bijzonder project and an interview collection in The Hague, which has yet to be determined, will be made searchable according to the meaning that people give to the concept of freedom.

 

In order to be able to make this link, we are looking for volunteers who want to analyse some 200 selected interviews on the meaning that people give to freedom and who want to label the different interview fragments accordingly.

 

The work can be done at home behind the computer. You can decide for yourself how many interviews to analyse and label. The Oral History Hub will provide you with a suitable software programme. You can also count on clear instructions on which labels to use and how to propose a new label yourself. There is also a helpdesk for all practical and substantive questions that you may have along the way.

 

Would you like to contribute to making various interview collections searchable? And do you want to add depth to the current discussion on freedom? Then sign up via info@sprekendegeschiedenis.nl. More information about the project Freedom as a theme can be found on the website sprekendegeschiedenis.nl under the heading themes.
