Oral History Society Conference 2009

The Oral History Society Conference was held in Glasgow on the 3rd and 4th July 2009. There were many intriging oral historians from all over the world, who presented papers and workshops, demonstating how much work is done within the Oral History field in relation to taking oral histories from individuals, audiotrails, sport, media, art and theatre and much more. see Oral History website for further details http://www.ohs.org.uk/conferences/2009.php.

One of the conferences guest speakers was  Scottish Poet Rab Wilson, recent holder of the Robert Burns Fellowship and winner of 2008 McCash Scots Poetry Competition, who gave the conference guests a Glaswegian welcome!

It was lovely to meet fellow Oral Historians and gain an insight into the work done in Oral History worldwide.
