NOHANZ Biennial Conference 2018

Oral History Association of New Zealand (NOHANZ)

The National Oral History Association of New Zealand (NOHANZ) will hold its biennial conference from 27 to 29 November 2018 at Waikato University, Hamilton.

This year’s conference theme 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?

The call for papers for the conference closed on 10 August 2018 but registrations are still open. To register complete the registration form available at:
