Catherine Gallagher has been interviewed by the University of California Berkeley Emeriti Association (UCBEA) as part of a pilot for a new program, the Legacy Project.
The project involves video recording of emeriti faculty for the purpose of preserving the history and accomplishments of its distinguished faculty. More specifically, the Legacy Project has the purpose of producing video interviews with faculty who are entering the Emeritus/Emerita phase of their career. The project aims to capture the history and experiences of a UC Berkeley emeritus/emerita, providing a record of contributions, accomplishments, challenges, met and unmet expectations, campus changes and the like of the emeriti’s career, especially in relation to campus history. The interviews are conducted in conversation with a colleague of the emeritus/a’s choosing. The interviews are intended to provide a personal record for posterity and to shed light on the history of the Berkeley campus and the emeritus/a’s department, college, and/or school. We see it to be of value to the emeritus/a’s family, friends and colleagues and to serve as a resource for historians.
As an initial pilot attempt to develop the project, UCBEA conducted an approximately one-hour videotape interview with Catherine Gallagher. The video for Gallagher can be found at: https://www.wevideo.com/view/1225749727
