From the EditorsAs you can see from this newsletter, the IOHA News remains very active. A number of events have taken place over the past semester and many others will happen soon. Both North and South America continue to be the most active in organizing events related to oral history. Indeed, during 2011 and 2012 a variety of meetings and conferences took place in Mexico, Argentina and the United States. This is probably a sign of oral history’s development and maturity that our discipline has reached in those regions. In whatever case, we wish to congratulate New Zealand for its national conference and Brazil for having organized the First Health Oral History Seminar.
At the same time, we believe it is important to highlight the work, projects and research that is being carried in different parts of the world. We particularly wish to draw attention to the organization and of a new oral history network in Ireland and the international conference that will be held in Kilkenny in September 2011, which will coincide with celebrations of the city’s foundation. Equally, we wish to welcome the new oral history centre in Uzbekistan and the project that they have undertaken to reconstruct the history of the twentieth century through oral history.
From these pages we also would like to thank all of those who have helped make this edition possible. We especially wish to thank Anna Green and Lleana Gadea Rivas for their reviews of recently published books. Unquestionably, this dynamic helps us keep up to date and in shape.
If you have an oral history meeting planned, have attended an interesting conference, are beginning or finishing a noteworthy project, developing an archive or have found an interesting monograph or website please let us know. We depend on you to make to make this an effective medium for sharing information about oral history around the world.
