OHS 2016: Beyond Text in the Digital Age? Oral History, Images and the Written Word
8-9 July, University of Roehampton
Keynote Speakers: Alessandro Portelli, University of Rome La Spienza and Mary Larson, Oklahoma State University
For many years the standard practice of transcribing or summarising interviews meant the auditory dimension of oral history was often underused. However, new digital technologies make audio and video oral history interviews, as well as extracts, much more readily available.

This interdisciplinary conference will investigate the usefulness of the written word in the digital age of oral history, asking if traditional oral history practices are at odds with, or an essential complement to, new technologies. Papers will showcase innovative uses of oral history, focusing on topics such as social media, ethics in the digital age and archiving.
