Each year the CCOH hosts an oral history workshop series that focuses on the many ethical and practical issuesraised by the practice of oral history in the different disciplines within the humanities and social sciences. This series, as part of the curriculum for the Oral History Master’s Program, is free and open to the public. For those of you who missed out on this past year’s workshop series, you can access the lectures for free on CCOH’s YouTube Channel! With more than twenty videos, the YouTube Channel features seminars by guest lecturers, professors, OHMA Alumni, CCOH past and current staff, and more. In addition, we welcome you to come join us for our upcoming 2012-2013 workshop series. Thank you for your continued interest and support, and we look forward to seeing you soon!
