Barbara Tint was interviewed by Patricia Schechter on May 29, 2020, in Portland, Oregon. Also participating in the interview are Alex Berg, Cleophas Chambliss, Oona Fisher Campbell, Jake Hutchins, Alex Ibarra, Lady J, Liza Schade, and Stephanie Vallance.

In this interview, Tint describes her path to academia through working as a counselor and with conflict resolution in a number of international settings. The discussion takes a theoretical turn when students inquired about the philosophical underpinnings of Tint's work.


Barb Tint is a member of the faculty of the Conflict Resolution program at Portland State University. She was one of the first to join the program after its founding in 1996.


This interview is part of a series of oral histories given by former and current faculty members in the Conflict Resolution program at Portland State University. In spring 2020, public history students at PSU undertook this research as the program celebrated its 25th anniversary.
