Another Research Community Project

Women and Narrative:An Oral History Research Community

by Ms. Wendy Gaudin
Dr. Betsy J. Hemenway

In order to understand the past- its varied representations and its usefulness in the present- one must examine collective memory. Careful not to naturalize memory, historians recognize its constructedness: memory is created out of the past and the present, it consists of both individual and collective experiences, and it is consciously expressed through narrative. Betsy Jones Hemenway and Wendy Gaudin, assistant professor and instructor in History, respectively, study narrative and its illumination of the varied nature of history. It is out of this research specialization and our desire to guide students in their understanding of history as a series of narratives that our proposal for a funded research community comes.
