I have over twenty years’ experience recording oral history interviews across a variety of academic research, community heritage and arts projects with a broad range of interviewees. I can also interview people outside of organised projects in order to preserve valuable family stories and memories for generations to come. Depending on availability I can be hired to record oral history interviews for any sized project; for one with a qualitative research focus, or simply to preserve the memories of a particular individual such as a family member or a friend whose story you would like to record for posterity.
I have my own recording equipment and insurance, and can advise on ethical guidelines in terms of permissions and consent. I will back up the interviews and save them as high quality audio files at archive recording preservation standards. I have my own transport and can travel to most parts of the UK (travel costs will be included alongside my fees if I need to travel outside of Sussex).
- I have a standard day rate for most projects depending upon their being academic or community heritage funded.
- Oral history interview recordings with individuals can be tailor-made to suit your purpose.
- I have recently participated in two pilot studies within which I recorded oral histories remotely online due to Covid 19. Whilst this is not ideal, it is a reasonable alternative if interviews need to be recorded during tier restrictions.
If you would like to enquire about any of my services please get in touch via my contact page and I will get back to you soon.
