The Routledge book series, Practicing Oral History, invites proposals for new titles relating 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. Authors from any discipline using oral history and at any stage in the recent writing process are encouraged. Contact series editor Nancy MacKay at to receive a detailed prospectus and begin a conversation about your book idea.
