Canadian Oral History Association (COHA) Prize
The Canadian Oral History Association (COHA) Prize is awarded to an outstanding example of oral history practise. Eligible initiatives include oral history projects, books, articles, exhibitions, films, and other activities that actively engage with oral history. Scholarly and popular works are eligible for consideration. Community practitioners are especially encouraged to apply.
Works produced or published in the previous year are eligible for entry.
This recent conversation on WNYC public radio, New York City, between Alison Stewart and Zaheer Ali about the oral history/public history project, "Muslims in Brooklyn," is well worth hearing in full -- both for its samples from the oral history interviews and for Ali's explanations of how to do oral history and why it matters.
