Want to have a say in in the future direction of the Oral History Australia Journal?
The new editors of the Journal, Skye Krichauff (University of Adelaide) and Carla Pascoe Leahy (University of Melbourne) today released some of their plans for the journal. They are keen to hear suggestions, submissions and queries from oral historians interested in contributing to the journal.
Recognising that oral historians are a diverse community—comprising local historians, GLAM professionals, heritage consultants, professional historians, academic historians, journalists and more—Skye and Carla are committed to a reinvigorated Oral History Australia Journal continuing to be a forum for a wide range of practitioners.
They plan to develop strongly-themed special issues and to feature scholarly articles interpreting original research and reflective articles that analyse historiographical trends. Welcoming project and conference reports along with book and exhibition reviews, the editors also intend to introduce a regular ‘Q and A’ session with an oral history practitioner. They will explore ways to refresh the visual format of the journal and hope to include aural versions of select articles.
Please also note that the deadline for non-peer-reviewed articles for the 2019 journal is 31 May 2019. For further information about submitting an article to the journal please go to https://www.oralhistoryaustralia.org.au/oha-journal1.html.
