History

The Institute for Community Studies and Oral History (ICSOH) was a research institute/centre at Nipissing University. Established within the university's history department in 2003, the goals of the ICSOH were “the promotion of research on the history of communities in the Near North and becoming a centre of excellence in community studies and oral history.” During its years of operation the ICSOH collected a large number of oral histories and historical records relating to North Bay and area, many of which were collected by students as part of projects for history courses. The ICSOH also hosted an annual conference in North Bay as well as other events relating to community history.

The Institute was governed by a director, Francoise Noel, and an advisory board made up of other faculty members from the history department. An ICSOH Research Centre Committee also appears to have been involved in governance from 2008 to 2009. Due to a change in university policy regarding research centres, the ICSOH lost its status as an institute in 2008 and officially became a research centre known as the Centre for Community and Oral History (CCOH). The CCOH disbanded in 2009.
