More about this California Humanities-support project:

Punjabi American Women Oral History Project: A Public History Collaboration between UC Davis and The Punjabi American Heritage Society

Regents of the University of California, Davis

Project Director: Nicole Ranganath

This project will be the first study to preserve and share the life histories of women in the historically significant Punjabi American community in California’s Sacramento Valley. In collaboration with female community experts, UC Davis historians will interview 36 Punjabi American women in the remote rural Yuba City area and record 12 women performing Punjabi folk songs about important life cycle events. The project is part of a robust, long-standing partnership between UC Davis and Yuba City’s Punjabi American Heritage Society. The videotaped interviews, photographs, and transcripts will be shared with researchers and audiences worldwide via the existing UC Davis Pioneering Punjabis Digital Archive.
