OHMA is excited to announce that we are seeking an adjunct to teach a Fall 2017 seminar on Oral History, Visual Storytelling, and Documentary Production!
The course we imagine will do the following:
- Introduce students to the creative and technical skills required to produce digital storytelling or short-form documentary work within an oral history framework. This includes training in audio and video recording, editing and final production.
- Engage with the ethical and creative dilemmas and opportunities of using oral histories as source material for a documentary work; lead students in developing an oral history approach to their own multimedia and documentary work.
- Guide students through the process of conceptualizing and creating visual multimedia presentations and mini-documentaries.
Applicants should send the following, as a single document, with the subject heading Oral History/Documentary to firstname.lastname@example.org by April 15, 2017:
- Letter of interest
- Teaching statement
- Samples of multimedia/documentary work (3 samples)
- Sample course outline – this need not be a complete syllabus, but should give a general sense of how you would structure and approach the course.
