Cassandra Marsillo is an oral and public historian, and teacher in the History Department at Dawson College. She listens to and tells stories about immigration, identity, memory, and community through a multi-disciplinary oral history practice. Coming from a background in Fine Arts, art continues to be a space in which she explores themes of nostalgia, imagining, remembering, and autobiography. Her work in oral history is inspired and informed as much by these explorations as the theories and methodologies of historical work.
