Dr. Carl Keyes, Associate Professor of History, Assumption College, discussed the value that undergraduate students in humanities courses derive from conducting oral history interviews, and also from the preparation of transcriptions and other documents for deposit in an archive. Dr. Keyes' presentation focused on how he has integrated oral history projects into History courses, and also included examples drawing from other disciplines, including Spanish and Women's Studies. Students also provided examples of how the experience of conducting oral histories impacted them.
