The Hall Center is again presenting the Oral History Workshop, an all-day event that attracts faculty, students, schoolteachers, library and museum staff, and members of the community.

The guiding theme this year is the oral history of war. The two plenary speakers are William Tuttle, American Studies, who will examine ?Pearl Harbor and 9-11: 'Flashbulb Memories,' Oral History, and American Children's Lives in Wartime? and Mike Tosee, Haskell Indian Nations University, who will talk about ?Native Americans in U.S. Wars.?

There will be breakout sessions on Visualizing War, on Veterans? Experience of War, and on War Stories and the Political Battlefield, the latter presented by Richard Norton Smith, director of the Dole Institute. Audrey Galex and B.J. Abraham will present ?Tapestry,? a mix of Jewish and Arab folklore, all of which relates to the Middle East, and to coexistence.
