Add Your Voice to the AGU Narratives Project

The American Geophysical Union is celebrating its centennial with an oral history project. Here's how they describe it:

Using historians, professional story gatherers, and public story sharing opportunities, AGU Narratives will feature a variety of stories. We hope to capture discoveries, challenges, and memorable moments from the last 100 years, as well as hopes and concerns for the future.

We are excited to host StoryCorps at the 2017 Fall Meeting as part of AGU Narratives. StoryCorps is a non-profit dedicated to “preserving and sharing humanity’s stories.” They tell stories that teach people about diversity and the world around them. StoryCorps will be interviewing a select group of individuals about their contributions to Earth and space science, and we need your help finding the right people!
 
There have been so many breakthroughs and accomplishments in the past 100 years that it’s hard to choose just a few from our community. We encourage you to nominate a colleague, a friend, or even yourself for a StoryCorps interview.

Submissions can include someone’s involvement in a well known scientific event, a personal challenge or accomplishment, or a contribution to Earth and space science as we know it today.

Share your story:
You can also share your personal stories with the AGU Community through StoryCorps Archive and the StoryCorps App. There you will be able to interview a colleague and immediately post and share the story. The StoryCorps Archive comprises one of the largest collections of human voices, featuring more than 400,000 individuals sharing their stories. 

 

Announcement Timing:
