Spring Workshop Series Schedule Now Available!

From the Columbia Center for Oral History

We are delighted with the success and overwhelming response to our fall oral history workshop series, which featured presentations by Michael Frisch and the 198 String Band, Voice of Witness book editors Sibylla Brodzinsky and Max Schoening, oral historianSuzanne Snider, Oral History Master of Arts Program alum Andrea Dixon and many more. We are now gearing up for an exciting spring semester in our series that is funded through the Paul F. Lazarsfeld Lecture Series for programming that embodies the late Professor’s commitment to improving methodological approaches that address concerns of vital cultural and social significance. The series is co-sponsored by the Columbia Center for Oral History (CCOH) and the Oral History Master of Arts Program (OHMA). All of our workshops are free and open to the public and will explore the myriad of ethical and practical issues raised by the practice of oral history in the different disciplines within the humanities and social sciences.

Thank you for your continued interest and support, and we look forward to seeing you soon!
