Capturing Transgender History

08 Apr 2020

The Oral History Centre would like to congratulate Jase Falk on completing the first phase of the “Capturing Transgender History” oral history project. Jase began the project in 2019, after being awarded the Abe and Bertha Arnold Oral History Grant.

Working with the OHC along the way, including using equipment loaned by the Centre, funds from the grant were used to cover costs associated with interviewing, including post-processing and transcription. As a result, Jase produced a set of 5 interviews that are archive-ready, and will be preserved in the OHC Archive.

The purpose of the Abe and Bertha Arnold grant is to award an individual or group funds toward establishing an oral history project that works to document community histories in relation to areas of inquiry that have been traditionally neglected by scholars. 

We are currently accepting applications for the grant until April 17, 2020.
