NOVA RPCV Oral History Project
The national Peace Corps Oral History Project (https://www.peacecorpsoralhistory.org/cpages/home), in collaboration with the Louie B. Nunn Center for Oral History (University of Kentucky Libraries), collects oral histories of RPCVs from the beginning of the Peace Corps to the present. NOVA RPCV participates with the project by interviewing RPCVs in the Northern Virginia region.
If you wish to be interviewed, please contact the project coordinator, Randy Adams, at firstname.lastname@example.org to set up an interview.
You can also go to the Oral History website to get involved: https://www.peacecorpsoralhistory.org/cpages/get-involved
Once interviewed, you can also become an interviewer to assist with gathering these important histories for the RPCV community and future historians.
NOVA RPCV is also collaborating with an oral history subset of the RPCV community - the ePCV or evacuated PCVs due to COVID-19.
These interviews are conducted on-line nationally. If you are an ePCV/RPCV, please also contact the project coordinator, Randy Adams, for an interview.
