2020 Conference


Texas Oral History Association

Ninth Annual (Virtual) Conference | September 11-12, 2020 

TOHA’s (virtual) conference was held on September 11-12, 2020 via Zoom. Although it looked different this year, we were able to bring participants quality presentations and programming that highlighted and promoted the use and good practices of oral history research across the state.

This year we were able to engage with attendees from across the state, nation, and world. This year's conference was hosted by Baylor University Institute for Oral History which has served as the host institution for TOHA for 37 years and recently celebrated its 50th year as a program at Baylor University.
