OHA Webinar: Finding Common Ground at the Intersection of Cultural Sustainability and Oral History

In partnership with the American Folklore Society, the Oral History Association is hosting a webinar on“Finding Common Ground at the Intersection of Cultural Sustainability and Oral History,” December 11, 2019, 1:00-2:30 pm EST.

Amy Skillman, director of the Goucher College Master of Arts in Cultural Sustainability program, and former OHA President Linda Shopes will present a webinar on the intersections between oral history practice and theoretical developments in the field of cultural studies. What can we learn from paying attention to each other?  How do complementary approaches strengthen our work?  Like the classic Venn diagram, what might happen in the middle when two allied disciplines, bring their methods, sensibilities, and theoretical frameworks to the same issue? 

Toward the end of their conversation, they will be joined by Heidi Lucero and Jasmin Temblador, graduates of the Goucher MA in Cultural Sustainability program who have drawn upon oral history to address sustainability concerns in their respective communities.  They will share specific case studies of their work: specifically, leadership empowerment among Latinx youth in South Central Los Angeles and the revitalization of traditional chin tattoos among California’s native communities.  We will reserve time at the end for further questions and comments.

Free to OHA and AFS members. Nonmember fee is $75.
