Closed (1) Rosie the Riveter / World War II Home Front Oral History Project

Applications for Spring 2019 are now closed for this project.

The Oral History Center of UC Berkeley [formerly Regional Oral History Office] has conducted over 250 oral histories with women and men focusing on their experiences on the United States home front during World War II. We are in the process of making these oral histories available online with audio / video synced to transcripts.

The undergraduates on this project will be reviewing the audio / video and transcript of oral histories, drafting consistent metadata, excerpting, and flagging discrepancies from a/v to transcripts and/or potentially sensitive content. Students will learn and reveal themes across these interviews, and contribute to a new library website with audio / video synced to oral history transcripts.

Day-to-day supervisor for this project: David Dunham, Staff Researcher

Qualifications: Interest in United States history, especially World War II on the home front. Ability to review transcripts, parsing metadata, common themes, isolating audio / video excerpts.

Weekly Hours: to be negotiated
