Call for Papers: Oral History Forum d’Histoire Orale 2014 Special Issue: “Human Rights and oral history: stories of survival, healing, redemption, and accountability.”
As a follow up to the 2013 special issue, “Confronting Mass Atrocities,” Oral History Forum d’Histoire Orale will continue the theme of oral history and human rights in 2014. Beyond documentation and commemoration, this new collection will explore the uses of oral history, narrative practice, and listening for healing, reconciliation, and justice in the aftermath of atrocity and abuse. Contributions of any length, discipline, methodology, or format are solicited from academics, narrative practitioners, artists, journalists, survivors (and perpetrators), etc. to explore the overlapping themes of atrocity trauma, memory, narrative, and history.
Original scholarship, visual and audio texts, experimental formats, and works in progress, as well as reviews of books and other media, are welcome. Abstracts and other proposals, including the author’s contact details, institutional/community affiliation, and a short biography may be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. Contributions will be considered on a rolling basis with complete and final versions due by Sept. 15, 2013. All submissions will be subject to blind peer review and should adhere to the style guidelines available here. For further information, please contact the OHFHO 2014 guest editor, Dr. Michael Kilburn.
