Toolkit invites scholars to reveal their tools and reflect on them in a convivial atmosphere. The 2017 Toolkit for Today seminar, “Oral History,” will consider the potential and challenges of oral history as methodology and its use for historians and critics as a source of information or as a way to collect evidence that is otherwise difficult to document. This seminar, like its counterpart on 4 July, is a moment when the week-long discussion surfaces in public.
