Weegy: Answer: Which of the following statements about interpreting historical evidence is true? D. New sources and ideas may change the interpretation of events. oral history interviews are not an unproblematic source. [ Although narrators speak for themselves, what they have to say does not. Paradoxically, oral history's very concreteness, its very immediacy, seduces us into taking it literally, an approach historian Michael Frisch has criticized as "Anti-History," by which he means viewing "oral historical evidence because of its immediacy and emotional resonance, as something almost beyond interpretation or accountability, as a direct window on the feelings and . . . on the meaning of past experience."* As with any source, historians must exercise critical judgment when using interviews- just because someone says something is true, however colorfully or convincingly they say it, doesn't mean it is true. Just because someone "was there" doesn't mean they fully understand "what happened." The first step in assessing an interview, then, is to consider the reliability of the narrator and the verifiability of the account. historymatters.gmu.edu/mse/oral/interpret.html ] (More)
