History of the Oral History Association: Alessandro Portelli

Renowned oral historian Alessandro Portelli recently sat down with us to recall his earliest memories of the Oral History Association.  The oral history interview was conducted at the Nunn Center by Jeffrey Keith on March 4, 2016. Portelli reflects on first attending the OHA, as well as what the Oral History Association has meant to him, both, personally and professionally.  One of my favorite quotes in this interview about the OHA,  “it is one of the places where the professional and the activist meet, and they learn from each other.”  Click here or on the image below to access this interview online.
