As a co-editor of the Oral History Review, I am part of an editorial team for the U.S. journal of record for the theory and practice of oral history and related fields. In addition to working with authors and performing developmental editing on articles with a focus on digital and/or public history, I am the lead editor of the journal’s blog and website, which aim to further promote the OHR’s mission of exploring the field of oral history and its significance. We provide digital space to those interested in presenting ideas, thoughts, conclusions, or arguments on the topic of oral history, and connect oral history to the ideas and events that shape contemporary discussions. While we in part focus this effort on giving OHR authors additional room to discuss their scholarship, we also use our platform to promote the national Oral History Association’s efforts, and we encourage oral history-focused submissions from anyone anywhere.
I also am the journal’s media review editor, and I welcome suggestions for digital projects, podcasts, apps, exhibitions, and documentaries that employ or engage with oral history that we should review in the pages of the journal. Reach out if you’d like to write a review.
