A journal of social practice & professional engagement for the Antioch community

The Great Lakes Colleges Association awarded Co-op faculty member Brooke Bryan and co-director Ric Sheffield (Kenyon College) a significant three-year grant for Oral History in the Liberal Arts (OHLA), an initiative designed to get GLCA students engaged in local and global communities through oral history and digital storytelling projects. Across the consortium of 13 small liberal arts colleges, OHLA will catalyze a community of faculty and students doing interview-based research with open source technology stacks and digital tools like PopUp Archive and the Oral History Metadata Synchronizer, while supporting faculty-mentored undergraduate research and building a pilot archive of interview projects with curricular ties. Dreams do come true!
