Oral Histories Project Receives Funding

Published on December 05 2012


Donato (Danny) Tarulli (CHYS) received a recent award from the Council for Research in the Social Sciences (CRISS) to support a research project entitled "Amarcord: The Niagara Oral Histories of Childhood Project".  He will be interviewing elderly Niagara residents and creating a digital archive of their childhood historical memories.  According to Tarulli, digital memory archives are important because "they help to make the past present, and open up new spaces for listening and for understanding the various ways in which people engage personal, national, and local pasts in their thoughts and actions."  It is expected that the archive will be available in 2013.  For details, please contact Dr. Tarulli.
