The Routledge book series, Practicing Oral History, is accepting proposals for new titles relating to oral history applied in any discipline or setting. New approaches to the discipline are especially welcome. Books should address one of these 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.

Scholars, practitioners, and first time authors at any stage in the early writing process are encouraged. Contact series editor Nancy MacKay at to receive a prospectus and begin a conversation about your book idea.
