Humanizing Oral Histories
Podcasts from SOTA Ethnic Studies 2019-20
Welcome! This semester, students were asked to interview an elder in their community about a topic of their choice. Conversations included immigration, interracial relationships, feminism, art, and activism. They then transformed the interviews into a podcast. Students learned how to conduct an interview, synthesize information, and edit audio. However, the most valuable takeaway was the wisdom that their interviewees shared with them.
