Conference co-chairs Steve Estes of Sonoma State University and Amy Starecheski of Columbia University, along with OHA Vice President Natalie Fousekis envision the annual conference as a means to “harness the power of oral history in these challenging times.”
As a culturally and linguistically international city, Montreal offers an exciting location to highlight innovative oral history work taking place across the Americas. And Concordia University’s Center for Oral History and Digital Storytelling, the conference host institution, boasts strengths at the intersection of oral history and performance, place-based storytelling, visual arts and participatory media.
Conference planners welcome diverse presentations from the array of disparate practitioners who carry out oral history work in a multitude of settings.
