Transcribing and analysing oral history in digital research environments

Digital archiving practices in the Netherlands in the past two decades have provided better access to oral history collections (Heeren et al. 2009, Kemman et al., 2013, Ordelman & de Jong 2011, de Jong et al. 2014), yet oral historians may not yet be fully aware of the other possibilities that digital research infrastructures have to offer. Digital research infrastructures should not only be regarded by oral historians as convenient ways of gaining and providing access to data (as it mostly is now), but also as means of data preparation and analysis.

This workshop seeks to remedy this limited understanding among professional oral historians in the Netherlands. We aim to do so by demonstrating parts of the CLARIN and CLARIAH research infrastructures, i.e. the CLARIN Oral History Portal and the CLARIAH Media Suite, which were both developed in the past few years (2015-2018).
