NIU Latino Oral History Project
Help the Center for Latino and Latin American Studies develop a collection of
Latino oral histories on research that examines the study of labor history, migration
studies, race and ethnicity, Latinos and public health, undocumented students and
workers, gender and sexuality studies, and the history of Latino entrepreneurship
in Northern Illinois.
We are currently looking for one to two students who can help create and launch
the research infrastructure for the program: This will include putting together
annotated bibliographies on Latino history and the history of Illinois and digitizing
bibliographies at the Center for Latino and Latin American Studies.
It will also include cataloging oral histories and transcribing tapes of oral interviews
in Spanish and/or English at the Regional History Center in the Founder’s Memorial
Library at Northern Illinois University. It is possible to get three units of internship
credit that can count toward the Latino and Latin American Studies minor.
If interested you can register for Oral History 494 during the spring semester of 2014.
