Event Description

Learn how oral history can be used to document and strengthen our connection to one another. This course will explore the history and methodology of oral history practice from some of the first documented oral histories in the 14th century, to the coining of the term "oral history" in the early 20th century, to concerns over decolonization and cultural appropriation in the 21st century. We will study how oral history increases our understanding of individuals and communities, as well as the historical events that shaped them using oral history interviews held by the Mansfield Library's Archives and Special Collections oral history collection.
