A new edited collection has just been published. Among the contributors are a number of COHDS affiliates and alumni including Steven High, Marie Pelletier, Liz Miller, Michele Luchs, Hank Greenspan, Stacey Zembrzycki, Yolande Cohen, Anna Sheftel, Sara Cohen-Fournier, Martin Messika, and Arthur McIvor.

Karoline Truchon, a SSHRC post-doctoral fellow at COHDS, has just been awarded the prize for the best thesis completed in the Faculty of Social Sciences at Université Laval. Her thesis was entitled, "L'exigence de visibilité dans les sociétés contemporaines. Le cas d'un complexe d'habitations sociales à Montréal." Congrats, Karoline!

We would like to warmly congratulate Catherine Charlebois, a core member of COHDS, and oral history curator at the Centre d'histoire de Montreal for having co-authored a new book Quartiers Disparus -- which is already on its second printing!

Concordia's Department of Theatre and the Centre for Oral History and Digital Storytelling are happy to announce a job search for a new tenure-track or tenured faculty member (at the Assistant or Associate Level) as Canada Research Chair in Oral History Performance.

With the democratization of media by its digitalization, storytelling has become immersive, interactive, participatory and/or collaborative. Stories are also more and more disseminated on the web through so-called “cross-”, “multi-” or “trans-” media platforms.

 

Congratulations to our recent PhD graduate and current post-doctoral fellow Julie Perrone! She has just been hired as Senior Advisor, Corporate Communications for Via Rail where she will be responsible for developing guidelines and objectives for VIA's participation in all history related initiatives.

Our affiliate Khadija Baker introduces us to her beautiful online project Map your songs…make our dreams...

Right to the City: Cross-disciplinary pedagogy and the politics of Montréal's South-West is an initiative born of a collaboration between Concordia’s departments of Art History, Theatre, and History, as well as community partners in Pointe-Saint-Charles.

It is our pleasure to announce that affiliates Anna Sheftel and Stacey Zembrzycki have won this year’s OHA Book Award for their 2013 Palgrave publication, "Oral History off the Record: Toward an Ethnography of Practice"! This award recognizes a published book that uses oral history to make a significant contribution to contemporary scholarship; and/or significantly advances understanding of important theoretical issues in oral history; and/or is an outstanding example of innovative oral history methodology. Congrats also to the many other COHDS affiliated contributors to this book including Alan Wong, Liz Miller, Erin Jessee, Hourig Attarian, Monica Patterson, Lucho van Isschot, Hank Greenspan, and Steven High.
