Miami University. Italian Americans in Ohio.
IAOOHP (Italian American in Ohio Oral History Project)
The aim of our project is to create a space to talk about Italian American Culture in the U.S. and in Ohio in particular. The Miami University Italian Americans in Ohio Oral History Project (IAOOHP) aims to collect audio – and video – recorded oral histories of Italian Americans living in Ohio as well as selected related documents such as photo albums, photographs, scrapbooks, diaries, letters, or other artifacts for inclusion in the project’s collection. The interviews and related documents will serve as a record of Italian American experience and as a scholarly and educational resource for the general public. The website will also include news about Italian American organizations, scholarly researches related to Italian and Italian American culture, a list of K-12 schools that offer classes of Italian in Ohio and links to websites related to Italian American culture.
