Jackson Center & Engaged Scholarship

Dr. Jacquelyn Hall, founder of the Southern Oral History Program, recently sat down for an interview with UNC Chancellor Emeritus James Moeser as part of the university’s “Good to Great” series. We encourage you to listen to the entire interview with Hall, a champion of oral history for more than 30 years. At 24:00, Moeser asks Hall about how oral history can inform community engagement and policy change. She mentions the work of the Jackson Center and our executive director, Della Polock. Moeser whole-heartedly agrees, saying “I think that’s the best definition of engaged scholarship I ever heard.” Watch the interview below!
