Summer blog posts from the Oral History Review

Hello again from your friends at the Oral History Review blog. Now that summer is in full throat here in Madison -- fresh produce, muggy and mosquito-y days, etc. -- it’s time to give you our occasional update about what we’ve been up to.

In the last few months we’ve highlighted three veterans’ oral history projects, and interviewed an author of a 44.1 article, where we tried to get readers “in on the joke.” We built on a media review published in the OHR that explored a Wisconsin city’s innovative public history project, and heard from the OHA’s 2014 Vox Populi winner about her work using storytelling to create meaningful change. Most recently (Friday, July 21), we shared an article – including a short video and a podcast – with reflections from the June Pride Weekend in DC from our friends at the Samuel Proctor Oral History Project at the University of Florida.

As summer fades and fall arrives, keep an eye out for new posts, featuring more great oral history content from the Oral History Review and beyond, as well as a preview of the 2017 OHA Annual Meeting, held in October in Minneapolis!
