Call for Expressions of Interest: Oral History Australia Conference Program Committee
The next Oral History Australia biennial conference will be in Queensland in 2019. Working alongside the Queensland OHA Conference Committee (responsible for all local arrangements) will be an OHA National Conference Program Committee which will be responsible for developing the call for papers, reviewing proposals and developing the program. The OHA National Conference Program Committee will comprise Alistair Thomson (Committee Chair and OHA President, from Victoria); Margie Brown (Chair of Queensland OHA Conference Committee), Elisabeth Gondwe (Queensland OHA Conference Committee), Sue Anderson (former OHA President, from South Australia) and at least two other members representing oral historians from other states and territories. We invite expressions of interest from oral historians who would like to join the OHA National Conference Program Committee. If you are interested in joining our program committee please email Alistair Thomson (firstname.lastname@example.org) before the end of December 2017, detailing in just a few lines why you would like to join the committee and what experience you would bring to our work.
