Almost all of the students who participated in Oral History workshop are from immigrant families and most will be the first in their family to attend college. The students work on their own oral history project and interview their parents about what it was like to move from one country to another. At the end of the six-day workshop, students present their stories to an audience of workshop participants and their families.
Below are selected papers from past workshops.
