A/P/A Voices: A COVID-19 Public Memory Project volunteers Tomie Arai (artist), Minju Bae (Rutgers University), Crystal Mun-hye Baik (University of California, Riverside), Preeti Sharma (California State University, Long Beach), Vivian Truong (Swarthmore College), Diane Wong (Rutgers University), and Mi Hyun Yoon (Rutgers University) participate in a “Campfire Session” entitled “Proliferating A/P/A Voices: A COVID-19 Public Memory Project” at the 2021 Virtual Meeting of the Oral History Association.
Campfire Sessions begin with a speaker (or multiple speakers) at the front of the room presenting an idea to a group of people. After fifteen or twenty minutes, however, the focus shifts from the presenter to the audience. For the remainder of the session, the presenter becomes a facilitator, inviting comments, insights, and questions from those around the room. Campfire sessions allow attendees to drive their own learning and share experiences with others, which also assists with networking.
