Introducing new editors to the OHR’s Pedagogy Section

While the use of oral history as an educational methodology is not new, there has recently been significant growth in the scholarship on this topic. Similarly, there has been an explosion of oral history projects from primary to graduate school classrooms and programs across the country and throughout the world. All levels of educators continue to seek out scholarship on teaching, as well as a forum in which student experiences and work can be shared with an interested audience. In response, the Oral History Review introduced a pedagogy section to the journal, featuring articles on pedagogy and highlighting exemplary projects related to education.

Starting in volume 43 (2016), the pedagogy section will be co-edited by Ken Woodward, Upper School history chair at the Stone Ridge School in Bethesda, Md., and Abby Perkiss, assistant professor of history at Kean University in Union, N.J. Woodward will handle the K-12 end of things, while Perkiss will focus on post-secondary education.

We want to take this opportunity to thank Glenn Whitman, whose work to found this section cannot be overstated.
