The Kentucky Oral History Commission (KOHC) is accepting grant applications for the fall fiscal year 2017-2018 grant cycle through Monday, Sept. 25.

KOHC grants are available for new projects, for the transcription and indexing of existing oral history interviews, and for the preservation of existing collections. Applicants can live and work outside of Kentucky, as long as the project is Kentucky-related or within a Kentucky archive. 

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.

Opportunities to Work with Oral History MA Students, 2017-2018

Dear friends of oral history,

I am writing to let you know about opportunities available this year to work with students in Columbia's Oral History MA Program and invite you to participate in our Fieldwork Partners and Internship programs. Please feel free to share this email with others who may be interested. This year there will again be two different ways to work with our students.

First, we are seeking organizations or projects with which students can partner to conduct three interviews as part of their fall fieldwork course.
