Call for Papers

12th European Social Science History Conference, Belfast April 4-7, 2018

Oral History and Life Stories Network’s call for papers:
Broadly, we want to encourage papers that explore recent methodological questions and challenges as well as the relationship between oral histories and the construction and analysis of life stories, both in terms of processes and outcomes. This, for example, might include the conceptual use and reuse of both oral histories and life stories in research, and/or considerations of the methods involved in both. We would encourage proposals that attempt to cross the oral history/life history divide (bringing the two research communities together).

Proposals due May 1: Proposals must be uploaded with required online pre-registration at the ESSHC-site NO LATER than May 1, 2017. Please refer to the ESSHC guidelines at on proposing and presenting papers. See:
