Oral History Association
Assessing the Role of Race and Power in Oral History Theory and Practice
On June 27, 28, and 29, 2022, oral historians from around the world will gather virtually for three days of discussion about the role of race and power in oral history theory and practice. Organized as a symposium, discussions will be based on pre-circulated papers posted on the conference website and made available to all registrants. Presentations based on these papers, as well as discussants’ comments, will be brief, allowing ample time for small, break-out group conversations. Each of the three days will include only two, well-spaced two-hour sessions, giving attendees the opportunity for focused attention in the context of their everyday lives.
