The COVID-19 Oral History Project is a rapid response oral history project focused on archiving the lived experience of the COVID-19 epidemic.

We have designed this project so that professional researchers and the broader public can create and upload their oral histories to our database.

All the data that participants collect and produce will be open access, open source and shared with researchers and the public through the IUPUI Library and the Covid-19 Archive.

The dataset will serve as

  1. an historical archive that compiles oral histories about the experience of living through the COVID-19 pandemic.

  2. a tool that allows individuals and communities to express their understandings, hopes, beliefs, and values about the COVID-19 pandemic.

  3. a resource to help researchers, policy makers, activists, artists, and communities interpret and respond to current and future pandemics.

Oral Histories are curated by the  COVID-19 Oral History Project based at the IUPUI Arts & Humanities Institute.
