Update from the Classroom: 2012 Oral History Workshop

Thirteen students from across the country arrived in Oxford on Tuesday to take part in our annual oral history workshop. The group spent the first day learning SFA-devised methods and techniques as they relate to conducting foodways fieldwork.

Yesterday, the group accompanied SFA oral historian Amy Evans Streeter to Yokna Bottom Farms, where they watched Amy conduct an interview and took documentary photographs.

Today, they're back in the classroom, learning how to process their work--one step closer to having all the tools they need to collect the stories behind the food.
