Events | OHMA’s Spring ’22 Workshop Series on Relating Oral History

Our colleagues in the Columbia Center for Oral History Research’s Oral History Master’s program have, once again, scheduled a series of innovative and though-provoking workshops for the spring semester.

The workshop theme is “relationships,” with this focus:

Oral history is knowledge formed in relationship. This year we plan to explore how oral historians have centered relationship in their work, how oral history processes can change how we relate to each other and to the past, and what it means to relate or retell an oral history to new audiences.
