At the Crossroads: Transforming Community Locally and Globally will be the theme for OHA 2000, scheduled for October 11-15, 2000 in Durham, NC at the Marriott Civic Center. The city of Durham is itself a kind of crossroads, where the rural has historically met the urban through the production of tobacco, textiles, and music.
Conference topics include the effects of globalization on communities and cultures; transnational communities; community history; biography and activism; ethnic and gender identity; "queering" American history; Latina feminist testimonies; trauma and interviewing; education and desegregation; ethics and the internet; electronic publishing; editing narratives for radio, video and multimedia formats; and the role of community scholars in oral history research.
