The Centre for Oral History and Digital Storytelling (COHDS) is an official research unit of Concordia University, located in Montreal, Quebec. Interdisciplinary in nature, it is home to over 80 affiliated faculty members and graduate students, more than 40 community-based artists and researchers, as well as heritage and history organizations. Widely known as a site of digital innovation in research and community collaboration, the Centre’s largest project, the Montreal Life Stories CURA Project, examines the life stories of Montrealers displaced by war, genocide and other human rights violations.
Research in partnership is at the core of the many activities of the COHDS, which include incorporating recorded life histories into online digital stories, animated film, arts and performance, radio programming and educational resources. As a partner with On the Move, the Centre will make its innovative digital oral history and storytelling resources, knowledge and research tools available to the partnership team. Dr. Steven High, Co-director of the COHDS and Canada Research Chair in Public History at Concordia, is also a co-investigator with On the Move and leads the Quebec field research team.
