The 2019 Biennial Oral History Australia Conference takes place in our 40th anniversary year. Oral History Queensland and Oral History Australia are presenting the conference, in partnership with State Library of Queensland.
The main conference at State Library of Queensland will be on Friday 11th and Saturday 12th October 2019. Oral history training workshops will be held at a Brisbane venue on Thursday 10th October. Following the conference, on Sunday 13th October a selection of history walks and tours will introduce participants to the region’s rich and diverse communities of memory.
In keeping with 2019 as the Year of Indigenous Languages, a Keynote plenary panel will focus on Oral History, Oral Tradition and Indigenous History (with invited speakers from Australia, New Zealand and Canada).
