The Columbia Center for Oral History [CCOH], of the Columbia Libraries, and the Oral History Master of Arts program [OHMA]
are hosting a two-day conference exploring the role of oral history in documenting, disseminating and educating students and
the public about the central events and concerns of our times.

The first day of the conference, May 1st, will conclude with a keynote by Stephen Soldz, director of the Boston Graduate School
of Psychoanalysis and public activist. Soldz will discuss the uses and impact of psychological torture on those held at Guantanamo
and other black sites, and the impact of condoning torture on democracy.

The second day of the conference, May 2nd, will feature a presentation on the WKCR/Center for Jazz Studies Oral History Project.
Brent Edwards, a professor in the Department of English and Comparative Literature and the co-director of the Project (with Ben
Young, the director of WKCR, the Columbia University radio station), will discuss the issues raised by oral history in the performing
arts and the unique approach of the Project, which involves the extensive use of archival material (including recordings, date books,
programs, and flyers) in the oral history process.

The conference gathers leading experts in the fields of oral history, law, human rights, and the arts.
