Oral History Association Annual Meeting

The Oral History Association will be holding its annual conference in Madison this year, from October 8 through October 12.

Certain events are free and open to the public:

Oct. 8: “Uncivil Disobedience”/Memorial Union Theater/6:30-8:30p Performance will highlight the oral histories of thunderous events in the Vietnam-era anti-war movement, including the 1970 bombing of UW–Madison’s Sterling Hall.

Oct. 10: “Private Violence” Documentary screening/Madison Public Library/7:30-9:30p Private Violence, an HBO documentary that premiered at the Sundance Film Festival, intimately reveals the stories of two women: Deanna Walters and Kit Gruelle. This feature-length documentary film explores a simple, but deeply disturbing fact of American life: the most dangerous place for a woman in America can be her own home.

Oct. 11: Best Practices Teacher Workshop/Concourse Room Capitol B/9:00a-noon Three-hour teacher workshop will focus on best practices for 4-12 grade educators. **Please note this event has limited space and availability**

Oct. 11: Community Showcase/Concourse Hotel/1:30-4:30p Nearly two dozen oral historians and history groups will display the results of their projects and talk to guests and attendees about oral history in general and their projects in particular.

Oct: 11: Richard Davis Oral History Interview/Concourse Hotel/7:30-9p Legendary jazzman and UW–Madison music faculty member Richard Davis will sit down and be interviewed; the oral history will eventually reside at UW–Madison Archives’ oral history collection.
