Please join us for the first part of a two-part series on Oral Histories.

In 2015, Brooklyn Historical Society (BHS) received a grant from the National Historical Publications and Records Commission (NHPRC) to digitize and make accessible online ten of its legacy oral history collections, some recorded as early as 1973. Totaling nearly 500 interviews, some of the collections were born digital, while others existed only on analog cassette tapes. The team managing the execution of the project includes BHS’s Oral Historian, Zaheer Ali; Managing Director of Library and Archives, Julie May; and Project Archivist, Brett Dion.  Each bring a different set of priorities and interests to the project and will share the challenges and benefits, impact and implications of the digital landscape on researching, archiving, and managing oral history recordings.

Please note that in attending this event, you automatically grant your consent for the event to be photographed, video-recorded, or Facebook Live.

The second part of this series will take place in May, more info to come.

A.R.T. graciously thanks the Brooklyn Historical Society for hosting this event.
