Call for Book Proposals: Practicing Oral History

Nancy Mackay's picture

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 International Oral History Association conference in Jyvaskyla, Finland, June 18-21 and happy to meet in person to discuss your book idea.

The series is devoted to applied oral history. Books should address one of three approaches to oral history: best pactices for a specific stage or skill within the oral history process, oral history adapted to a specific professional community, or using oral history to achieve a specific goal.

Contact Nancy at for a detailed prospectus or to discuss your project.
