Columbia Oral History Training Workshops on Jan. 20 Registration Now Open!

Registration is now open for Columbia’s

Join a group of OHMA faculty and alumni for an intensive day of workshops on Saturday, January 20, 2018, from 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Hamilton Hall, Columbia University.

OHMA trains students to conduct research through creating and analyzing interviews, and to develop fieldwork projects to address historical and contemporary issues that require interdisciplinary investigation. The field of oral history supports research on immigration, migration, ethnicity, gender, politics, government and human rights. Through the collection, archiving and analysis of individual, community and institutional histories, they preserve the critical first-person narratives that capture the spirit of our society for generations to come.
