Groundswell is pleased to announce our first round of Practitioner Support Network (PSN) video conferences! The PSN is a safe, informal space for practitioners to discuss questions that come up in our work using oral history for movement-building and social change.
For our Spring 2012 round, we’ve got practitioners from two very different projects who will pose questions related to community collaborations, the ethics of documenting the experiences of people who have survived trauma, and effective methodologies for using oral history to catalyze community dialogues.
- April 18: Using Oral History with Trauma Survivors (Survivors of Intimate and Family Violence): Ethical, Practical and Personal Considerations
- May 16: The Hydrofracking Debate: Oral History as Catalyst for Community Dialogue
Each videoconference will start at 1:00pm EST and will last approximately one hour. If you are interested in joining either of these calls, please sign-up here. Note that participation is limited to 8 participants per video conference, so we encourage you to sign up soon!
