UWinnipeg Oral History Centre Grand Opening
The University of Winnipeg invites you to celebrate the exciting grand opening of the Oral History Centre (OHC) on Tuesday, May 7, 2013, at 5:00 pm, second floor Bryce, 515 Portage Ave.
Oral History is grounded in local knowledge and is connected to global experiences. As a method of exploring the past, oral history builds people’s capacity to appreciate the complexities of history, to critically evaluate the role of history in society, and, perhaps most importantly, to participate in the making of history. Officially founded April 26, 2012 by the University Senate, The Oral History Centre is a signature element of the H. Sanford Riley Centre for Canadian History and is supported by generous donors through The University of Winnipeg Foundation.
