Since September 2013, Lord Mayor’s Certificate in Oral History has been organised annually by Dublin City Archives as part of its commitment to life-long learning. Participants on this 70 hour course are equipped with skills in the preparation and conduct of oral history projects. The seminar format will consist of five of our Certificate graduates giving 10 minute ‘lightening papers’ about their unique oral history project and findings. The papers will be followed by a discussion on the value of oral history as a research methodology and the wealth of recorded oral narrative sources which exist in Ireland.
