In celebration of the Gerstacker Foundationís endowment of the E.N. Brandt Oral History Program, the Chemical Heritage Foundation will hold a conference on oral history methods and applications on 16 May 2007. This conference will feature talks and discussions on the use of oral history in business and science as a learning tool for leadership training, as a means of preserving personal recollections, and as a method for capturing, identifying, and interpreting the heritage, philosophy, and values of a company or academic institution. The conference will also deal with modern methods for conducting, recording, transcribing, and processing oral history including innovations in digitization. On a larger scale, we will explore oral historyís ability to provide cross-fertilization among institutions, fields, and the general public.
The Chemical Heritage Foundation invites scholars to submit proposals for papers and discussion panels, with a one-two page abstract and a brief biographical statement in Word format, by 1 December 2006. Registration information will be available at a later date and a limited number of travel stipends will be available.
