Oral History Projects

Deep Roots: Oklahoma Authors Oral History Project 

In late 2017, Emily Hull was appointed principal investigator of the Deep Roots: Oklahoma Authors Oral History Project. The initial phase of this project will focus on women authors as a subseries of the OSU Library’s Women’s Archive initiative. Over the next year, she will conduct oral history interviews with Oklahoma poets, essayists, fiction writers, and playwrights to highlight what these writers have to say about their lives, their work, and Oklahoma itself.
