Why we (still) need an oral history of reading

We’re delighted that Professor Martyn Lyons is spending this summer 2014 in the UK. With Lucy Taska, Martyn published the first oral history of reading, Australian Readers Remember (1992), and he’ll be giving the first of the Oral History Society‘s research seminars at the Institute of Historical Research on Thursday 4 September: ‘The Australian Readers Remember project in retrospect, or why we (still) need an oral history of reading’.

The seminars are at 6pm, free and open to all. Click here for more information.

Martyn is also part of the project’s Advisory Group which is first meeting on Monday 8 September.
