The SC Center for Oral Narration was officially established as a Center by the Commission of Higher Education in 1999. Presently housed in Arts and Letters, the Center serves to document, preserve and present oral traditions. Its humble, yet growing collection of publications and documentations is housed in the Center and USC Sumter’s Anderson Library; resources are available to researchers and lovers of oral traditions.


Regular programming sponsored by the Center includes the following: Celebration of the Spoken Word: Fall Storytelling, The Annual Jack Doyle Storytelling Festival, The Spoken Word Series: Poetry and Drama, Reader’s Theatre, and A Scholars’ Tea.
