A quick update with the latest, to say that having carried out all the interviews, the summaries are now also complete, and we’re in the process of putting them on the University of Roehampton project website.
We’re also looking forward to the next project event at the Institute of Historical Research at Senate House, London, where we’ll be giving our talk on ‘Memories of Fiction’ and gendered reading in ‘100 Families’. All welcome, and more information here.
Finally, for now, we want to publicise the call for papers currently out, for the Oral History Society conference we’re involved in organising, ‘Beyond Text in the Digital Age? Oral History, Images, and the Written Word’. Proposals for papers are very welcome – please submit an abstract of 250 words or less by 18 December. We’re especially keen to hear about oral history and reading… Please spread the word!
