Faith Bagley
  • Project Manager - Obama Presidency Oral History
  • Professional: As an employee or independent contractor, I have been hired as an oral historian or to provide related services.

    I earned my Oral History Master of Arts from Columbia University in 2011 and have been a practicing oral historian since 2010, working in a variety of full-time positions, temporary contract roles, and as a freelance practitioner.

  • I am available for hire - as an oral historian, consultant, presenter, educator, or related services||I am available to answer questions, or provide mentorship to other oral historians||I am available to collaborate - on research, community projects, artistic endeavors, or other joint undertakings with peers
  • I am based in New York City and travel throughout the United States for projects. I'm also available to meet, provide services, and conduct interviews remotely.
  • Whether the audience is museum-goers, documentary filmmakers, family members, radio producers, writers, or researchers at local historical societies or university archives, I ensure that interviews and interview-based collections will serve as a valuable resource that resonates far into the future.I have led workshops and discussions at Columbia University, Princeton University, the Félix González-Torres Foundation, the Intrepid Sea, Air and Space Museum, and the 9/11 Memorial, among others. My writing has appeared in the Oral History Review, Public Historian, and the Brooklyn Rail. I am co-founder of In Context Journal, and a member of the Oral History Association.
  • I conduct one on one interviews to document life and career experiences, bringing relevant social and historical research into my questions. I also advise on the shape and scope of interview-based collections, including the ethical, technical, and practical requirements necessary for oral historical projects. My work has focused on topics including visual arts and artists' legacies, gender and sexuality, memorials and monuments, the built and natural landscape, healers, historic preservation, NYC neighborhood history, AIDS activism, and international philanthropy.
