This chapter describes how oral history can be used in geographical research. After defining oral history, we outline the aspects that make it unique and distinguish it from other forms of interviewing. These aspects include establishing rapport, dealing with sensitive issues, understanding the ethics of interviewing, ways to ask questions, and the importance of sound quality.
