Centre for Oral History and Digital Storytelling

The Centre for Oral History and Digital Storytelling (COHDS/CHORN) is based at Concordia University. It explores the links between oral history, digital media, the arts and education. It collects, archives, analyzes and shares audiovisual oral history records, primarily through its members’ projects and initiatives – which have historically shaped the Centre’s identity and values, placing the principle of shared authority at its core. COHDS serves as a point of convergence, meeting and discussion for all those interested in oral history within the university and beyond.  Since 2018, COHDS includes the Acts of Listening Lab (ALLab), which prioritizes research and creation in relation to oral history, performance, and listening.
