Alistair Thomson and I are editing a special 'parenthood' issue of the British journal Oral History, for publication in early 2019. We are currently soliciting reviews of books that deal with the history of parenting and/or the family using oral history interviews.
If you have recently published or are soon to publish a book that fits these parameters, please get in touch with me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
This special issue of Girlhood Studies, close to double the length of previous issues, offers a blockbuster of articles on the theme of the girl in the text, guest edited by managing editor, Ann Smith. As the third in the Girlhood Studies 10th anniversary collection, this special issue was inspired in part by the spate of novels over the last few years that draw attention to the girl in their titles.

AMECYS Call for Panels, Roundtables, Thematic Conversations & Special Issues Sessions at MESA 2018
For the OHA Annual Meeting in October 2018, I'd like to organize a panel of paper presentations, a roundtable, or a facilitated discussion on conducting and using oral histories of adults to understand their childhoods. My own research focus is on children and youth during the Cold War; however, the proposed topic would be relevant for scholars in any historical area who use adults' oral histories to learn about their childhoods.
