“Memories on Display: Using Oral History Interviews as Academic Sources and Exhibits at Memorial Sites.”(July 23-29, 2017)
(Apologies for cross-postings)
A new episode of Amplified Oklahoma is now available. Known to her friends in California as “the Okie Poet,” Wilma Elizabeth McDaniel wrote more than 50 books of poetry and stories. In honor of National Poetry Month, we’re going to take a look at her life and work. Listeners will hear oral history interview excerpts from Roxanne Dunbar-Ortiz and John Cooper, who shared stories from Wilma’s life with OSU's Karen Neurohr.
The Baylor University Institute for Oral History invites individual scholars with training and experience in oral history research who are conducting oral history interviews to apply for support of up to $3,000 for summer 2017 and the 2017-2018 academic year. With this grant, the Institute seeks to partner with one scholar who is using oral history to address new questions and offer fresh perspectives on a subject area in which the research method has not yet been extensively applied. Interdisciplinary, cross-cultural research on local, national, or international subjects is welcome.
