Oral History Association Annual Meeting - Celebrating 50 Years
When: October 12-16
Where: Long Beach, California
Registration is open for the 2016 Oral History Association annual meeting! The 2016 meeting will capture the spirit of the first National Colloquium on Oral History in 1966 by introducing lively theoretical and methodological discussion space, examining current and ongoing work, as well as looking toward the future of the field.
The theme of “OHA@50: Traditions, Transitions and Technologies from the Field” is well represented in this year’s programmatic line-up. The Oct. 12-16 meeting will have more than 100 sessions, including wide-ranging topics relevant to oral historians’ work in such diverse areas as archives and collection management, social justice, public history and education.
Also this year we welcome Southwest Oral History Association (SOHA) members in the first joint meeting of the two organizations. Keep an eye out for SOHA-designated presentations, with a good dose of local and regional topics.
Exclusive to 2016 is a track, sponsored by the 50th Anniversary Task Force, devoted to seminal points in the oral history field as public space for discourse on the state and future of various key movements.
Join us at the beautiful Aquarium of the Pacific on Thursday evening during the conference. Attendees will be mingling with the jellyfish and penguins as we celebrate 50 great years of the Oral History Association with a buffet dinner, drinks, and a lively program.
We welcome all to attend this special meeting! For information on conference rates, housing, workshops, and tours, see Annual Meeting.
