Interviews, 2018

Scope and content:

Duke students in AMES 204FS "Documenting the Middle East" undertook semester-long audio interviewing projects to collect the oral histories of four Palestinians: three in the West Bank and one from the Diaspora. Working in pairs, the students recorded two long-form interviews with their interviewees. Interviews were conducted by Skype or in person. Each interview is transcribed, and each student wrote fieldnotes after both interviews. The interviewees shared stories of their daily lives, cultural traditions, experiences living in refugee camps, their educational experiences, family stories, observations and stories about living under occupation, and their professional interests and activities. They spoke about Palestinian identity and personal goals. Also included are edited audio projects, four minutes each, which were produced for a Duke Service-Learning website, "Arabic Communities:"
