Thursday October 13th sees the launch of the first series of joint seminars organised by the Oral History Society and the Institute of Historical Research.
The series aims to highlight the important work being undertaken by oral historians in academia. The Oral History Society is pleased with the collaboration with the Institute of Historical Research because it underlines how far oral history has come in being accepted and valued by other historians.
The seminars provide an opportunity for people to hear experienced oral historians talk about exciting projects and make connections with others working in the field. Afterwards, there will be an opportunity for further discussion over a glass of wine.
Next year, once the series is more established, we hope to have even more speakers.
The seminars take place at the Institute of Historical Research in London.
This year's speakers all have a strong political thread running through their papers. They are:
• 13th October
