Call for Proposals -- Researching NY -- Oral History in New York State

In addition to the general call for papers, we especially want to draw the attention of oral historians working in New York State to the call for papers for the annual Researching NY Conference. The conference draws folks working on all aspects of NY history and would be a great opportunity to showcase some of the outstanding oral history work across New York State. I'm happy to discuss further and answer any quesitons about the conference via e-mail, smccormick@albany.edu.
