In this post, OHMA alumni and recipient of our alumni travel grant Lynn Lewis reflects on her experience presenting at the 2018 Oral History Association annual meeting in Montreal. The 2019 call for papers is now open!
We are proud to announce the winner: Nyssa Chow, and Ellen Coon, the runner up. We invite you to consider the resonances between these two theses: in the recreation of the literal voices and memories of powerful women who tend to the living and the dying and all the attendant rituals in between, and who translate the stories that enliven the next generation.
We are excited to offer a round of summer news updates from our Oral History MA program student and alumni community! From prestigious awards to new jobs and press coverage, OHMA affiliates are taking oral history to new heights.
