Oral and Written History Archive
The primary goals of this oral and written history archive are to help document the Hispanic presence in Oregon, gain insight into what it is like to be a Hispanic or Latino living in Oregon, learn about the rich and vibrant Hispanic culture in our state and share what we have learned with others. Spanish V Honors students began collecting the stories of Hispanic Oregonians in the fall of 2009. Students conduct these interviews in Spanish either in person, via e-mail and/or over the phone. Students transcribe and translate all interviews, help with editing of audio and/or video footage and decide which interviews will be included in this public archive.
It is our hope that this archive, which is currently under construction, can become a source of pride for those who have so generously shared their stories with us and a learning tool for all who consult it. Audio and video interviews will be added in the upcoming weeks.
If you, or someone you know, might be willing to contribute to this archive, please contact us so that we can set up an interview.
