Oral History Project
During the summer of 2010, as LMDA celebrated 25 years of serving the profession, the organization launched an archival initiative known as the Oral History Project. At the annual conference in Banff, emerging dramaturgs were employed as interviewers to begin the process of collecting video-documented narratives of founding and long-term LMDA members. Using guidelines developed by the Baylor University Institute for Oral History, interviewers sought to establish conversation with leading practitioners not only about their LMDA institutional memory but also about their continuing perceptions of the field.
The OHP continues as LMDA plans future interviews. Forthcoming opportunities include the July, 2011 Denver conference and scheduled interviews in NYC. If you are a founding member of LMDA and have not yet scheduled an interview, we encourage you to contact Danielle Carroll, LMDA administrator.
LMDA expresses its appreciation to project advisor Dr. Jim SoRelle, Baylor University History Department, and NYC interview space coordinator Dr. John Lutterbie, Stony Brook University Department of Theatre Arts.
