The Department of Theatre and the Centre for Oral History and Digital Storytelling are in the process of hiring a new faculty member, who will then be nominated as a Canada Research Chair in Oral History Performance. This is a key moment in the history of COHDS, cementing its relationship to the Faculty of Fine Arts and the Theatre Department.
In the coming weeks we will be interviewing three of the shortlisted candidates, each of whom will be giving a public lecture at COHDS on their work. All three are world-class researcher-practitioners, so we very much hope you can make it to one or more of these public talks:
Dr. Luis C. Sotelo-Castro, University of East London. “The Most Convenient Way Out: Making Oral History Available as a Guided Audio Walk in a Zone of Conflict.” Monday April 27, 2:00-3:30 @ COHDS (LB 1042)
Dr. Caleb Johnston, University of Edinburgh. “Performing Migrant Stories in a Transnational Field.” Tuesday May 5, 2:00-3:30pm @ COHDS (LB 1042)
