Symposium theme: Oral history interviewing: Old and new challenges

The deadline for submissions to present at Oral History Victoria’s annual symposium is fast approaching.

Oral History Victoria invites proposals for presentations about the practice of oral history interviewing as well as theory and methodology, which will allow us to reflect on and learn about the new tools, skills, challenges and opportunities oral historians should consider.

We’re looking for presenters of all varieties – community and professional historians, students, academics – and at all stages of their careers. Please send submissions to contact@oralhistoryvictoria.org.au by 10 of May 2019. Be sure to include your name, organisation (if applicable), contact phone number and email, plus a 100-word abstract and a one sentence bio. Please also describe the type of presentation you propose, which might be a 20-minute talk, a 5 minute ‘lightning presentation’, a workshop activity, a poster presentation or a thematic panel.
