2015 Conference

Voicing Commemoration

11 – 12 September 2015

The Long Room Hub, Trinity College Dublin

The Oral History Network of Ireland (OHNI) is pleased to announce its 2015 Conference on the theme of ‘Voicing Commemoration’. This two day conference will take place on Friday and Saturday, 11 – 12 September 2015 in the Long Room Hub, Trinity College Dublin.

In light of the ongoing Decade of Centenaries, this year’s conference theme focuses on the role of oral history in giving voice to commemoration.  As with our previous conferences, our objective is to bring together individual oral history collectors, local community groups, curators, archivists, academics and policy practitioners in order to encourage a range of lively debate and discussion across the broad spectrum of oral history.

In continuing with OHNI’s tradition of inviting keynote speakers of international renown, we are delighted to welcome Professor Sean Field, Department of Historical Studies, University of Cape Town to this year’s conference. You can find out more about Sean’s work here.

We are also pleased to announce our Call For Papers: ‘Voicing Commemoration’, details of which can be found here.  And following on from our very successful ‘Moments in Oral History’ panels last year, we are again seeking contributions for 10-minute presentations at this year’s conference.  Full information can be found here.  You can also download details for both the CFP and our ‘Moments in Oral History’ from the files below.
