(with Columbia oral history program) virtual event

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.

All events will be hosted online via Zoom. They are free and open to the public with pre-registration required. After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting. 

The Student Workers of Columbia are on strike for a living wage, comprehensive health insurance, and outside arbitration for workplace harassment cases. In solidarity with the striking students and at the request of the speaker, we are holding this event on a non-Columbia Zoom account, and will be sharing information about the strike, and how you can support the students, during the event.

These events are open to all. You can use this quick survey to let us know how we could make these events more accessible for you. Note that we are able to provide ASL interpretation for any event, but need two weeks' notice. Please contact Rebecca McGilveray at [email protected] with specific access requests or questions.
