The Routledge book series, Practicing Oral History, invites proposals for new titles relating to practicing oral history that bring context to our complex, contemporary world. 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 community of interest, or oral history to document a community or work for achieving social change.

Authors from any discipline using oral history and at any stage in the writing process are welcome. Find series editor Nancy MacKay at the upcoming Oral History Association conference in Los Angeles or contact by email for a detailed prospectus and to begin a conversation about you book idea:
