About Oral History Australia
The aims of Oral History Australia are to:
The Oral History Association of Australia was formed in 1978 and in 2013 was re-named Oral History Australia. It remains a non-profit body whose members practise and promote oral history.
National conferences are held biennially focusing on current and future oral history projects as well as ongoing and evolving issues such as ethics and copyright. These conferences usually include international speakers.
The Oral History Australia Journal is published annually and its contents reflects the diversity and vitality of oral history practice in Australia. Items for publication may be accepted from overseas-based contributors.
All State Oral History Associations hold regular meetings, seminars and workshops and encourage members to lodge their work with libraries and archives for the benefit of researchers and to ensure preservation. Some states are able to provide recording equipment at very low rates to members.
