Annual Meeting

The 48th Annual Meeting of the Oral History Association will be held at the Madison Concourse Hotel in Madison, Wisconsin.  The meeting is scheduled for October 8-12, 2014, and the theme is Oral History in Motion: Movements, Transformations, and the Power of Story. Each year, the Annual Meeting offers opportunities to learn, discuss, and review almost every aspect of oral history practice. Attending the Annual Meeting is a terrific way to become engaged in the OHA and meet colleagues in the field.

The 2014 Call for Papers is available here.  The deadline for 2014 meeting submissions has passed.
