KCC-CUNY Family Comm Project New York, New York

This is an oral history project for the course SPE19 Family Communication at CUNY Kingsborough, in Brooklyn New York. Students conduct research and interview with a senior family/community member around a piece of family history or a family object, and present a narrative story digitally, engaging concepts we learn from class. The key readings that frame this project highlight themes of immigration, transnationalism, multi-racial and LGBTQ families. The objective of this project is to invite students who are not from traditional American heteronormative middle-class families to become historians of their own family experiences from a communication perspective.
