Lily Chow - The Importance of Oral HistoryWorkshop Leader: Lily Chow

Description: This workshop is to delve into the preparations and strategies and finer points of conducting oral interviews. It will also cover the handling of and making use of archival collection materials and using it as an aid to building a historical impression to aid in meeting your objectives and constructing an in-depth and compelling story.

Lily Chow was born in Malaysia, but has lived in Canada since the mid-sixties. She has taught in the Prince George School District and at the University of Northern British Columbia. She now devotes her time to researching and writing. Her first book, Sojourners in the North, won the Jeanne Clarke history award and is used in many colleges and universities as a reference text.
