Norwich Voices – an oral history project
It is human nature to tell stories. We do it to explain our lives. The voice is powerful, and our brains are hardwired to respond to voices; babies turn their heads toward the sound of a human voice and newborns react differently to human speech and garbled sound.
Norwich Voices is a new oral history project in which we’re seeking to capture the stories of the Norwich community. The theme is the training of citizen soldiers at Norwich and the effects of that training beyond school. We are funded by the Tawani Foundation.
We are soliciting names of people to interview, so if you know someone who might be a good subject, please contact us to relay their information. We are especially interested in WWII and later veterans. Individual interviews will be collected and preserved in a digital repository for instruction, research and presentation. The project will involve working with students, alumni and friends of the Norwich community.
