In 2019, the Oral History Journal will turn 50 years old and we are marking the occasion with fiftieth anniversary celebratory events for the Oral History Society as a whole to include:
- A celebratory event and anniversary party
- The launch of a new Oral History Society archive at the British Library
- Online edited audio highlights from the ‘Oral History of Oral History’ project, featuring pioneers and practitioners of UK oral history over 50 years
- And a special online edition of ‘Oral History’: it’s this I’m contacting you about now.
Oral History Journal is seeking nominations of the most important and inﬂuential articles the Journal has published in the last ﬁfty years.
This is your chance to let us know which articles from the OHJ have inﬂuenced you and your approaches to oral history. Which have inspired you? Which have challenged you? Which are your favourites? Which do your recommend to others (and why?).
Here’s an online survey. It only takes a few minutes: https://bournemouth.onlinesurveys.ac.uk/ohj50.
We’ll publish the best responses and the authors of these will be invited to the anniversary party! Keep an eye out for more details of the special events for OHS@50.
