In over two decades of experience, Caitriona Clear still has not worked out the formula for the perfect oral history interview. In this lecture she will use both her own oral history experience and her students’ initiatives to explore not only what she has learned about Ireland in living memory, but what she has discovered about the unforeseen roadblocks and unexpected rewards in the practice of oral history.

Caitriona Clear is Senior Lecturer in the Department of History at NUI Galway. Her most recent book is Women’s Voices in Ireland: Women’s Magazines in the 1950s and 60s (Bloomsbury, 2015). She is currently researching Irish-published fiction in the 1930s, 40s, and 50s.
