Interviews: Guidelines and Permissions

Page history last edited by Digital Explorations 13 years, 6 months ago

 

It is essential to keep in mind the sensitive nature of an interview.  To catch someone's story, you have to build trust; to build trust, you must stay aware of the interviewee's rights and feelings about telling a story and having it published and/or used to extract information. 

The Tip Sheet on Asking Good Questions, Getting Great Answers

covers many of the situations you will encounter and provides you with steps to ensure that you respect your interviewee's right

 

 

Permissions

 

Always let your interviewee know that you will seek his/her informed consent to conduct the interview, to edit it and to publish it.

 

StoryCorps has an excellent  downloadable handbook on do-it-yourself audio stories

 

Another excellent handbook to download, with sample forms (my favorite resource) comes

from Duke University's Indivisible Project

.

Other examples of consent forms:

Indiana University's Informed Consent Form

 

A Selection of Forms from The Veterans' Project

 

Folklife Center's Release Form

 

Central Washington University's Collection of Forms

 

  

 

 

You will likely wish to look at all of these forms and design you own specifically for use in the Heart & Soul Storytelling Project.
