Oral History Association Annual Meeting
Hyatt Regency, Buffalo, New York
October 15-18, 1998
The Oral History Association invites proposals for papers and presentations
for its 1998 annual meeting, to be held October 15-18 in Buffalo, New York.
 The theme of the meeting is "Crossing the Boundary, Crossing the Line:
Oral History on the Border."  Proposals that relate to mediations among
diverse communities; class, ethnic, racial, and gender perspectives;
interdisciplinary approaches; transnational issues; migration and
immigration; transgressions; new frontiers in technology; lesbian and gay
history; relationships in interviewing; marginality; oral history and
received historical wisdom; shifting borders in oral history; and ethical
and legal boundaries are especially encouraged.  Proposals on other topics
are also welcomed.
The Program Committee invites proposals from oral history
practitioners in a wide variety of disciplines and settings,
academic institutions; museums; historical societies, archives, and
libraries; community organizations; media professionals; and
independent historians. We also encourage proposals from graduate
students and from those involved in both precollegiate and
postsecondary teaching.  Sessions may address the many uses of oral
history in media such as film, video, radio, exhibitions, drama, and
new electronic media.  Similarly, while sessions may be organized in
the customary panel format, we encourage proposals for roundtables,
workshops, poster sessions, media and performance-oriented
presentations, off-site sessions, and other formats that go beyond
the boundaries of conventional conference presentation.  We welcome
proposals from other professional organizations, including state and
regional oral history associations affiliated with the Oral History
Association, and proposals for presentation in French from French speaking
Canadians.  OHA policy prevents those who will present papers at the 1997
annual meeting from doing so in 1998; such individuals, however, may serve
as session chairs and commentators.
Applicants must submit four copies of the following: for full session
proposals, a one-page description of the issues and questions the
session will address and a one-page abstract of each presentation;
the name of the convenor; suggested commentator(s); and short vitae,
including institutional affiliation, mailing address, phone numbers,
and e-mail addresses for each presenter.  Individual proposals should
include a title, one-page abstract of the presentation, and a short vita of
the presenter.
