Hispanic Oral Histories of East Tennessee (HOHET) project

HOHET LOGO

Maryville College’s history is deeply rooted in a commitment to diversity in all its manifestations. As such, supporting and strengthening the Hispanic/Latino community through the Hispanic Oral Histories of East Tennessee (HOHET) project is another example of this commitment. In 2009, Dr. Geoff Mitchell, a Spanish professor in the Division of Languages and Literature, created the HOHET project in order to share the experiences of Hispanics and Latinos who arrive(d) in East Tennessee from Spanish-speaking countries. Those who work on the project--editors, interviewers, translators--are students studying Spanish.


The methodology of the project consists of three stages. First, we contact members of the Latino/Hispanic community in East Tennessee. Then we interview them in order to understand their experiences as immigrants. Finally, we disseminate these interviews via a number of media within Maryville College and the community. Any members of the Latino/Hispanic community in this region who would like to share their experiences have a place in this project.
