Description: One of the primary themes of this course has been to explore the various ways the world is transcribed into historical narrative. These oral histories were an exercise in one of the primary forms of information gathering, processing, and writing. The students were on their own in figuring out the "rules" for writing history; the assignment sheet was more provocative than prescriptive. As such, each oral history looks a little different for a multiplicity of reasons---put another way, the subjectivities mediating these histories of WWII are made palpable.
