Storm Stories: Oral history and best practices

Posted in Special Collections

Jennifer Abraham Cramer, Director of the T. Harry Williams Center for Oral History, is quoted in today’s Oral History Review blog post, “Oral History in Disaster Zones.” The post’s author, Caitlin Tyler-Richards, encourages anyone considering conducting oral history after a natural disaster to take Cramer’s advice, and “print [it] out and tape to their walls.” Cramer advocates for those conducting oral history projects to follow the Oral History Association’s principles and best practices to ensure the creation of high-quality primary sources while being sensitive to interviewees as they make sense of their experiences, particularly those that are recent and potentially traumatic.

Cramer serves as the Media and Non-Print Review Editor of The Oral History Review. She can be reached at LSU Libraries’ Special Collections via phone at (225) 578-7439 and by email at jabrah1@lsu.edu.
