An interview with Amy Starecheski, from Oral History for Social Change

Amy Starecheski was recently named Director of the Oral History Master of Arts (OHMA) program at Columbia University, where she has been working as Associate Director.

I thought I would take this opportunity to introduce Oral History Center subscribers to Amy via an interview that appears on the Groundswell,  Oral History for Social Change blog She talks about oral history as a collaborative process between interviewer and interviewee, about “ongoing consent.”

Here is a link to her book, Ours to Lose: When Squatters Became Homeowners in New York City, which was published in 2016 by the University of Chicago Press.
