Scarborough Oral Histories Collections

Back to Project Description

The SOHP initiative began in the fall of 2013 with the first offering of a successful interdisciplinary course in Oral History – Oral History and Urban change – involving faculty and students from City Studies, History and Womens’ and Gender Studies. Since that first offering faculty from Sociology have participated and others have shown interest in working on future joint offerings of this course concept. Interest in the SOHP is growing and new collections are being added including course-based collections from HISD44 Nearby History, HISD48 Selected Topics in Canadian Womens’ History, the 2014 offering of Oral History and Urban Change and finally the Stories of UTSC: 1964-2014 legacy project.
