2019 Award of Distinction in Oral History


The Centre for Oral History and Digital Storytelling offers an annual Award of Distinction in Oral History. This $500 student award recognizes research excellence in the interdisciplinary field of oral history.

Graduate students enrolled at Concordia University, and affiliated with COHDS, who completed their work after 1 April 2018 are eligible to be nominated (by their professor or self-nominated). Citizens, landed immigrants or international  students are eligible. An adjudication committee at COHDS selects the best research paper, research creation project, or thesis. The results will be announced at the annual Emerging Scholars Symposium, to be held next year on March 22 2019.

Applications should include:

The research paper or thesis, or any material describing the research creation project (website URL, text, images, etc.), a cover letter including information on the study program, and a short summary of the project being submitted for consideration (250 words or so).

Applications may be submitted by email up until 1 February 2019 to: ohconcordia@gmail.com.

If you are a student, please consider nominating yourself, and if you are a professor, please consider nominating a student. Once again, this prize can go either to a thesis or to a research paper, or to a research creation project. Nominees must already be affiliated with COHDS at the time of application.
