The Documentary and Oral History Studio became part of the Department of History in the fall of 2012. It’s work combines the high production values and storytelling techniques of documentary filmmaking together with the scholarly methodology of oral history. Our work is informed by the research agendas of faculty and students, whether working independently or collaboratively. We prioritize assisting faculty and student projects that lead to publication or scholarly engagement in some form, whether as feature films, articles, books, presentations, or online media. The Studio’s main course offering is HIST A404: Documentary and Oral History, which is also a required course in Loyola’s new BFA in Digital Filmmaking.
NOTE: This site is under construction and will launch officially in the fall of 2015. Please visit often as we will add content weekly during our build period.
