Oral History in the Digital Age

Presenters at the annual OHV symposium will explore the challenges and opportunities of doing oral history in our digital age. They will consider how evolving technologies are transforming how we create, curate, produce and disseminate oral history; and how the global, online accessibility of digital oral history interviews is impacting the people who share their stories and the historians who work with them.
