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.

The preliminary online program for the meeting is now available at OHA Program. Click “View the Online Program” on the left side of the page. A PDF of the print program is available for download at OHA 2016 .
