A panel of scholars described how they have used oral histories to help present a more complete record of protests on college campuses in the 1960s and '70s. They used slides as they presented papers. Then they all responded to questions from members of the audience. Barbara Truesdell moderated.

The papers were: Kelly Sartorius on “A Dean of Women and Student Activism: Cooperative, Intergenerational Work During the Student Protests at the University of Kansas;” Gregory Wilson and Craig Simpson on “Above the Shots: The Kent State Shootings and the Politics of Truth, Trauma and Reconciliation;” and Rosalie Uyola on “The Liberation of Rutgers-Newark: History, Memory, and Black Student Radicalism.”

“History, Memory and Campus Protest During the Long 1960s” was a session, held in the Renaissance Denver Hotel, of the 45th annual meeting of the Oral History Association “Memories of Conflict and Disaster: Oral History and the Politics of Truth, Trauma, and Reconciliation.” close
