Hello! We recently received a grant for a pilot project to create an open access primary source "reader" featuring Virginian oral histories that fit with the curriculum goals of the American history survey (since 1865). The idea is that high school and college students will have free access to a curated group of oral history clips (anywhere from 2-10 minutes long), their context, and discussion questions from their computer or phone. Together, these would serve the function of a textbook companion or written primary source reader.
We are down to our last space for our Oral History Summer School workshops! Join us in Hudson to learn to use oral history in your life and work.
Applications are now open for Oral History Summer School 2019! We have two workshops in Hudson, NY this summer. Come all ye budding oral historians, artists, advocates, and researchers who wish to make of use of oral history in your practices.

Audio is a powerful medium for capturing human experience and human expression. In the context of cultural sustainability efforts, audio is a useful tool for documenting local knowledge, exploring values and perceptions, and building resources for understanding and supporting cultural practices.
