The National Oral History Association of New Zealand (NOHANZ) invites abstract submissions for their biennial conference to be held at the University of Waikato, Hamilton, Wednesday 28 and Thursday 29 of November 2018.
This year the theme of their conference focuses on the sweet sound of the voice, the singers of tales (te waha kairongorongo), storytellers, and the resonance of the voice through time and space. How is oral history transient through time and space? How do the voices of our participants travel through, or resonate in, time and space as a vehicle for memory? What significance do we find in the spaces we use to access, listen to, co-create, and present voices that give meaning and memory to the past? How is the notion of “time” apparent in the transmission of memory across generations of voices?
