HIST 670 Oral History Performance
May 5, 2016 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Join us for an oral history performance by students in Dr. Seidman’s HIST 670 Oral History Seminar! This semester the class studied Race, Gender and Entrepreneurship through oral history. The students have been exploring how small-business owners in the Triangle and Triad experience entrepreneurship. How is it shaped by their race, gender, sexuality, ethnicity, and immigration status? How and why did they get started—what motivated them? How do they understand their role as a businessperson, whether in their family, their community, or the wider culture? Do they see their entrepreneurship as connected to social movements like civil rights, feminism, or environmentalism? How do they define success? Entrepreneurship is a “hot topic,” whether on campus or in the news. But what do entrepreneurs really want and need to be successful? What role do they play in their communities and in the state?
Light refreshments will be served. We hope to see you there!
