Goucher College/Smithsonian partnership

Perhaps of interest to some list readers: 

The Master of Arts in Cultural Sustainability program at Goucher College, in which I teach oral history, has recently announced a partnership with the Smithsonian Institution, offering students various opportunities in the documentation and promotion of local cultures.  Further information available at: https://www.goucher.edu/news/goucher-partners-with-smithsonian?fbclid=IwAR1EWPCIE9qMw1dLne...

Oral histories with refugees

My home town, El Paso, is one of the main entry points for refugees entering the United States and asking for asylum. We receive anywhere from 500-1000 people daily. Their stories are being captured by the media and they are quite compelling. I have started an oral history project to preserve their stories for the long-term. We are at a historic moment and their stories are incredibly important. Is anyone else doing a similar project? I would love to hear from you.
