The Olive Project: An Oral History Project in Multiple Modes
Anderson, Erin R.
Kairos: A Journal of Rhetoric, Technology, and Pedagogy, v15 n2 Spr 2011
This project is devoted to the memory of my grandmother, Olive. It is at once her life story and not a story at all. In a sense it represents the product of an intimate family collaboration and of the close journey we shared in collecting and preserving her oral history. But this project is not a product, nor is it entirely about my grandma, about me, or about the sentiment out of which it emerged. The Olive Project is about "process," and at its core it is also about "you," about your encounter with it, and about your participation in the ongoing process of composing memory.
