Third Wednesday of every month, 1pm – 3 pm

moderated by Kelann Curie-Williams

The COHDS Reading Group is a monthly gathering where we come together to discuss a single text (article, book chapter, etc.) and explore how it has shaped our understanding of oral history practice and theory. This is a great opportunity to engage in thought-provoking conversations, ask questions, and learn from one another.

All community and student affiliates (and beyond!) are welcome to join us, either in person at COHDS sunroom (LB-1019) or via Zoom. The reading group is held every month, so mark your calendars and come join us for an enriching discussion!

For inquiries, please write to Kelann Curie-Williams.

For attending online, you can follow the zoom link here.
