Routledge "Practicing Oral History" Series

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 Oral History Association conference in Salt Lake City, Utah, October 17-21, and happy to meet in person to discuss your book idea. Whether or not you are attending the OHA conference, contact for a detailed prospectus or to discuss your book project.

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