ORAL HISTORIES IN THE TIME OF COVID

In spring 2021, George Mason University students, under the supervision of folklorists and professor Dr. Lisa Gilman, conducted virtual interviews with community members on "Calvert County: The Culture of Agriculture Past and Present.” Students gathered photographs and other documentation, and produced podcasts, videos, and other materials for use by the county.

We held a workshop, provided by the American Folklife Center which integrated training students with providing opportunities for Calvert County residents to develop interviews skills as part of this larger project.
