Brockington Historians attend Annual Oral History Association Conference

As part of the Brockington Oral History Program, oral historians Scott Kitchens and Charles Philips attended  the national conference of the Oral History Association (OHA) from October 4-7, 2017, in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Their involvement included a poster presentation for a project conducted in St. Johns County, Florida.

This year’s conference focused on using oral history as outreach for engaging audiences. A series of presentations focused on oral history as a means to reach out to historically disenfranchised groups to give them a voice. Other themes included oral history in podcasting, oral history in classroom teaching, academia and oral history, and the new OHA Oral History Metadata Synchronizer.
