About Oral History Australia

The oral history movement embraces a diverse range of practitioners who record and use oral history interviews, including family, community and professional historians, museum curators and archivists, media workers and journalists, teachers and academics in a variety of disciplines, from history to anthropology, sociology to health care, linguistics to communication studies.

We share a passion for recorded life stories, especially from people and groups who are under-represented in the historical record, and for the difference oral history can make to understanding and changing our world.
