Thank you for contributing to our collection!
We are interested in stories from personal experience that have been repeatedly told by an original storyteller. Many of them have become "legendary": they have been shared, told, and retold in families and among friends.
We are collecting such stories!
In what follows, you are "the interviewer", and you will motivate your partner, "the reteller", to tell the target story.
This questionnaire is meant to guide you through the process of recording with people who participate in these small networks of shared stories.
If you contribute to our collection, it would be favorable if you have a personal relationship with the people you are interviewing. The conversation should be natural, and not an inquisition!
You could prompt the stories you want to record, e.g.: "do you remember uncle ... telling us about the time ...?".
You can do the recording firstly and then fill in the questionnaire together with your interview partner.
The story should be told at least once. If the storyteller is enthusiastic, you could encourage the story to be recounted once again.
Then fill in the questionnaire, and upload the files.
For the purpose of this collection, we would appreciate the collection of some personal information on the reteller, as indicated in the questionnaire, and on the person who first told it, "the storyteller". If some information is unavailable, complete the questionnaire to the best of your ability.
