The Texas Oral History Association (TOHA), founded in 1983, promotes the use and good practices of oral history research through a variety of programs and publications, including the journal Sound Historian. Comprised of individuals representing diverse interests and disciplines, the professional organization will host its eighth annual conference on April 26-27th, 2019, on the campus of St. Edward’s University in Austin, Texas.
St. Edward’s University is a private, liberal arts institution that has been in existence since 1885. This meeting is generously sponsored by their Journalism & Digital Media program and the Department of History.
Join us for presentations from scholars, educators, students, history enthusiasts, folklorists, family historians, and others who are showcasing their work with oral history. This year will feature a pre-conference oral history workshop by Tacey A. Rosolwski, Ph.D., who will discuss ways to market and package oral histories as public relations products, a Friday evening “Meet ‘n Greet” mixer, as well as a special presentation by UT School of Journalism professor and Voces Oral History Project founder and director, Dr. Maggie Rivas-Rodriguez.
Registration for the conference will open in March 2019. To register for the conference, please visit www.baylor.edu/toha/2019conference. Registration for the conference is free with the exception of the pre-conference workshop ($25) and the conference luncheon ($10-15).
