Summary

The Finnish Oral History Network (FOHN), University of Jyväskylä and the Finnish Literature Society (SKS) cordially propose to host the XX International Oral History Congress at the University of Jyväskylä, Finland, from 18th June to 21th June 2018.

The theme of the XX IOHA Congress is Memory and Narration. The congress focuses on the complex and multidimensional nature of oral history, and we welcome presentations from diverse perspectives. We invite papers that focus on methodological issues concerning the production and analysis of oral histories and life stories. We especially encourage contributions related to oral history sources as narratives/narration and applications of methodological theories and practices.

Therefore, the panels and presentations will address the following themes:

- Archived oral history
- Personal and shared narratives
- Transgenerational memory
- Class, gender, and memory
- Traditions, folklore and history
- Oral history research in different disciplines
- New waves of oral history
- Oral history, theory and ethics
- Oral history and narration
- Life narratives and oral history

The XX IOHA Congress coincides with the anniversary of two important events in Finnish history, the centennial of the 1918 Finnish Civil War as well as the end of World War I. The congress organizers would therefore like to commemorate the history of these events by welcoming contributions on the following topics:

- Memory and war
- Coping with war or other crises
- Narratives of survival
- Intergenerational war memories

Call for papers will be published in February 2017.
