Long Beach, California
Renaissance Long Beach Hotel

Make plans to attend the 2016 OHA Annual Meeting, featuring the Southwest Oral History Association (SOHA), in Long Beach, California. The annual meeting attracts a broad range of people and features the best work in the field. The meeting enables students and both emerging and established scholars to network and learn valuable skills. The theme this year is OHA@50: Traditions, Transitions and Technologies from the Field. The fiftieth anniversary meeting offers an opportunity to reflect back on the evolution of this interdisciplinary field, gauge its current trends, and look ahead into the ever shifting oral history landscape of the future.

Submission of proposals has closed for the 2016 meeting. OHA will open the Call for Posters in June.
