American Oral History

This course explores oral history interviewing, texts, and films, within the context of efforts to create a fully representative social and cultural history of the US. Students design individual or group oral history projects, to capture the experiences and perspectives of people formerly regarded as "unhistorical"-in particular, women, working class people, immigrants, people of color, and gays and lesbians. (Satisfies the research requirement for women's studies majors.)AMST 311L and WGS 311L are the same course.
