Faculty Affiliates

The SOHP is pleased to work with faculty across disciplines and campuses in the Triangle area. The purpose of our Faculty Affiliates Program is to establish a community for those who work in oral history and with the SOHP, to communicate with others about issues and opportunities, and to learn from one another’s expertise.

As a Faculty Affiliate, you will get:

  • access to free oral history workshop or training for yourself or for your students
  • inclusion of your oral history research in SOHP communications
  • networking with other oral historians
  • invited to attend monthly SOHP colloquia, and to share your work at one colloquium
  • access to a closed email listserv

We will hold one meeting per semester for our Faculty Affiliates and hope that you will join us to discuss shared concerns (such as IRB and the ethics of oral history work, oral history pedagogy) and potential collaborations.

If you are interested in joining the SOHP Faculty Affiliates, please fill out the involvement form. We welcome your participation in our growing community of oral historians.
