Voces of a Pandemic Oral History Collection

Collection of oral history interviews conducted in English and Spanish on the experiences of Latinx peoples in Omaha during the COVID-19 global pandemic. 1 interview included here has neither a summary or transcript. The remaining 21 interviews are summarized in both English and Spanish. The 7 interviews conducted in Spanish are transcribed in both Spanish and English; the other 14 interviews conducted in English have English-only transcription and indexing at this time. The interviews were collected by the Office of Latino and Latin American Studies (OLLAS) Director Cristián Doña-Reveco in partnership with University of Texas at Austin Voces Oral History Project. Most interviews were conducted by Director Doña-Reveco while some were conducted by OLLAS faculty member Dr. Isabelle Beulaygue.
