Exciting Changes for the Oral History Review!
On January 1, 2012, the editorship of the Oral History Review will change hands, and—in a departure for the OHA—an editorial team is coming on board. Kathy Nasstrom, of the University of San Francisco, will become the editor and Troy Reeves, of the University of Wisconsin-Madison, will step into a new position of managing editor. Kathy will be responsible for the overall management and development of the journal, and Troy will handle its production. Kathy and Troy have identified their top priorities as: 1– strengthening the OHR as the journal of record for the field of oral history in the U.S.; 2– developing a more thoroughly international, interdisciplinary, and multimedia journal; 3– crafting a journal that meets the needs of the Association’s diverse constituencies. John Wolford will continue as book review editor; Jennifer Abraham Cramer as media review editor; and—in another departure—a new position is being created to develop the multimedia capacity of the OHR. Doug Boyd, Louie B. Nunn Center for Oral History at the University of Kentucky Libraries, will assume this position. Stay tuned for more on all of these developments!
