Sent: Thursday, August 15, 2013 10:31 AM To: H-NET Discussion List on Oral History Subject: Putting oral history online: proposed panel for IOHA, Barcelona, July 2014 Colleagues Picking up on the recent posts about making oral history interviews available on the Web, I'd like to propose a panel on the topic for next summer's International Oral History Association conference in Barcelona. Proposals need to be in by 15 September. I've spoken to the topic, from our perspective here at the British Library, at successive IOHA meetings since I organised a panel on online access at the Sydney IOHA back in 2006, and would be happy to do the same for Barcelona. If you'd be interested in joining a panel about online access to oral history (and think you will get the funding to attend the conference!) please e-mail me off this list with an outline of what you could contribute to the overall subject. In particular I'd like us to explore Ron Grele's provocative assertion that "...the future does not look bright. The only interviews that will be placed online will be very very 'safe' or innocuous. We will soon be back to vanity interviews of movers and shakers."
