Fall 2011 Oral Histories
Below you'll find 9 stories recorded by students in the ART 302: Curatorial Studies course. For the project, students could select any person to interview and the parameters of the interview (content, scope). All students asked three common questions (or variations of these, depending upon the person). These include:
1. Who has been the most important person in your life? Can you tell me about him or her?
2. Who has been the kindest to you in your life?
3. Have you shown kindness to anyone? Tell about this experience.
This project has been a highlight of the semester, for many reasons. I hope that you are able to listen in. Note: because the students recorded their interviews on-site with their persons, there may be variances in sound quality and volume. Be ready to adjust your volume on your own computer when you click the DivShare/listen box. Also, it's best to listen to these with headphones.
And, by all means, feel free to leave a comment below any oral history.
