Sarah Choi interviews Sasha Su-Ling Welland, chair and professor of Gender, Women, and Sexuality studies at University of Washington, Seattle, and Sabrina Craig, director of Community Engagement for South Side Home Movie Project in Chicago, to discuss their engagement in cross-generational storytelling. Acknowledging the vital role women’s shared memories have played in preserving historical knowledge, Welland and Craig make a connection between their pedagogical, ethnographic, and counterarchival practices, which situate cross-generational conversations at the heart of feminist historiography.
