In the spring of 2021, during the height of the Covid-19 pandemic, I designed a project that engaged students to use Oral History as their research tool to generate their own stories from real experiences of real people impacted by the Covid 19 pandemic. The project has three parts: Research & Planning, Implementation, and Presentation.
For Research & Planning part, students conducted Oral History interviews and collected stories from real people. For the Implementation part, students created full-color drawings based on the collected stories. The project was their final project for the semester and students used color pastels and 18”x24” papers as drawing materials. For the Presentation part, each student presented the summary of a collected story and a drawing inspired by the story to classmates and received comments.
We could achieve this project with the help of the Oral History Research Center at UNLV Libraries.
