The Routledge book series Practicing Oral History is accepting proposals for new titles on applied oral history. Series editor Nancy MacKay will be at the Archives* Records conference in Austin, Texas, August 1-7 and happy to meet in person to discuss your book idea. Contact Nancy at email@example.com for a detailed prospectus or to discuss your project.
Please note this call for papers on H-Announce, which may be of interest to those of you who are researching reconstruction in Western Europe in the 20th century.
It would be great to get some oral historians to this symposium - we'd love to hear the voices of people who were part of reconstruction efforts or who were recipients of aid or support following times of crises such as wars, civilian upheavals and natural disasters.

The four-day event features:
We are deeply saddened to announce the passing of Vivian Perlis, the intrepid founder and long-time director of Yale's Oral History of American Music. Vivian Perlis’s legacy is an invaluable collage of pioneering foresight and determination, the effects of which will be felt for generations to come. Her discernment of the benefit of chronicling the musical voices of our time led Perlis to interview colossal figures from Aaron Copland to Eubie Blake, John Adams to John Cage, and—among many more—those who had known and worked with Duke Ellington and Charles Ives.
