UW Oral History Program head, Troy Reeves, was recently selected to serve on the Wisconsin Humanities Council. Reeves has led workshops and public conferences across Wisconsin, educating the public in the practice and the value of oral history. Troy recently wrote an article for Humanities Booyah sharing an example of an oral history project on which he has worked.
Members of the Wisconsin Humanities Council are volunteers. They review grant proposals three to five times a year and attend WHC and grant-funded events around the state serving as ambassadors for the Council and evaluating our programs. Board members are also critical in helping the WHC make connections and raise money. The board contributes a great deal to make history, culture, and conversation happen all over Wisconsin.
