"NARRATIVE CRISIS" IN PEOPLE WITH MENTAL ILLNESS

 

The video above is a product of the Oral History Research Office (OHRO) at Columbia University, where I work. Check out OHRO's website and blog.

The video features Clare Oh, a graduate of Columbia's Oral History Master of Arts (OHMA) program. In the video, I speak with Clare about her thesis work, which consisted of oral history interviews with people with depression and bipolar disorder. Here, Clare talks about the inspiration for her project, the interview process, and what interviewees had to say about losing -- and re-taking control of -- the "authorship" of their own life stories.
