On February 24, 2016, CCOHR Director Mary Marshall Clark and OHMA Associate Director Amy Starecheski gave a talk at the Bard College Graduate Center. Check out the video below:
At Bard Graduate Center, Clark and Starecheski discussed oral history as a research method, a mode of public engagement, and a field of inquiry. Clark shared her insights on oral history vis-à-vis her work on issues of history, memory and trauma, the body, and the arts. Starecheski presented a case study of oral histories with former Lower East Side Squatters, framing their buildings as material culture and illustrating anthropological uses of oral history alongside ethnography.
