2015 Oral History Summer Institute at Columbia University
Greetings from the Columbia Center for Oral History Research! We are thrilled to announce our 2015 Summer Institute, “Narrating Population Health: Oral History, Disparity, and Social Change,” to be held June 15-26, 2015 at Columbia University in New York City.
The program will focus on ways that scholars and advocates have used oral history to illuminate the impact of inequitable distribution of health resources in local and global communities. Through workshops and presentations, participants will develop skills in interviewing, analysis, interdisciplinary research methods, and digital oral history application; presenters include medical researchers, historians, population health experts and sociologists. Areas of focus include: mass incarceration, reproductive rights, harm reduction, HIV/AIDS, addiction, stigma and discrimination and the impact of the built environment on health.
