Unlocking the Power of Oral History: A Community Storytelling Workshop

Judith Rosenbaum

The Jewish Community Center of Greater Ann Arbor hosts Judith Rosenbaum, Ph.D., Executive Director of the Jewish Women’s Archive, on March 26, 2017 from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. for a special program and participatory workshop entitled “Unlocking the Power of Oral History: A Community Storytelling Workshop.” Facilitated and guided by Dr. Rosenbaum, participants will learn interviewing skills, share stories with one another, and cultivate new and existing relationships by discovering more about the lives and experiences of fellow community members. Participants are asked to bring a personal or family artifact—such as an object, photograph, or letter—relating to a Jewish woman in the participant’s life.


Unlocking the Power of Oral History: A Community Storytelling Workshop
Tuesday, March 26, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Good Girls and Nasty Women: Gender in American Jewish History

Rebecca Traister with All the Single Ladies

JWA co-sponsors this exciting event, part of the Jewish Book Council’s series Unpacking the Book. If you’re disappointed that Amazon’s Good Girls Revolt was cancelled after the first season, come hear award-winning journalist Lynn Povich, the author of the memoir upon which the show was based, in conversation with women’s historian Bonnie S. Anderson and journalist Rebecca Traister, author of All the Single Ladies: Unmarried Women and the Rise of an Independent Nation. Discover the Jewish women behind history’s great revolutions and contemporary movements, from the activists of America’s Antebellum, to the women’s liberation stirrings of the mid-century, to today’s “nasty” women.

Advance registration is required. The event is free, but space is limited. Early arrival is recommended. In addition to the program, attendance includes refreshments and a book sale and signing. More information and registration here.

JWA is a sponsor of this program.
