Jaycie Vos will present at the roundtable panel “New Roots/Nuevas Raíces: Building a Digital Bilingual Archive of Latino Oral Histories” at the Oral History Association Annual Meeting on October 14, 2016 in Long Beach, California. New Roots is a research initiative of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill that documents the migration, settlement and integration of Latino communities in North Carolina through oral history. Founded in 2007, the project has generated over 160 interviews, with around 40 new interviews conducted annually by bilingual staff and students. The interviews address various themes, such as migrant experience, adult education, youth activism, language and communication.
New Roots received the 2016 Elizabeth B. Mason Project Award in the major projects category from the OHA, and it will be presented at the meeting.
