Social Change Interviews
"This web-site is comprised of original oral history interviews carried out by students of Dr. McCleary’s Hist 150 and Unst 390 course, spring 2016, 2017, 2019 and 2020 as part of James Madison University’s general education program. All of the interviews are available in MP3 form and transcriptions. The general theme of the interviews are about social change in the 20th and 21st centuries as depicted through themes such as the Cold War, gender, immigration, education, and the workplace. In spring 2020, they interviewed people about the most recent social change that we have experienced, the Coronoa virus. After the interviews were posted, students analyzed them to discern patterns of change in themes of their choosing."
