Call for Papers:

"Working with Memories" : Australasian Oral History Strand

This strand is presented in collaboration with Oral History Australia and the National Oral History Association of New Zealand.

This strand will bring together presenters from Australia and New Zealand to explore the opportunities and challenges of working with memories as sources for historical research and production. This is an exciting time for oral history. New technologies are opening up novel ways to create, research and produce oral history while posing challenging methodological and ethical dilemmas. Research funding is generating major national projects, while community oral history is as vibrant as ever, often with a political edge for human rights. We are looking for presenters who will highlight innovative approaches to the creation and use of oral history, and/or who will show how they are using oral history to make distinctive contributions to historical research or contemporary politics. Presenters in this Australasian strand will be invited after the conference to submit their papers for a joint Australasian oral history publication. For inquiries, contact the Strand convenors: Dr Nepia Mahuika ( nmahuika@waikato.ac.nz) representing the National Oral History Association of New Zealand (NOHANZ), or Professor Alistair Thomson ( alistair.thomson@monash.edu) representing Oral History Australia.

Paper Proposals for this strand must be submitted direct to the AHA conference organisers at aha2017@newcastle.edu.au (noting that you would like your paper to be considered for the Working with Memories: Australasian Oral History Strand) and must abide by the following instructions.
