Anyone interested in business history or archives should attend this year’s Oral History Society annual conference, which focuses on corporate oral histories. The conference, which takes place on 5th to 6th July at the University of Sussex, will explore the hidden histories of organisations, including private companies, public institutions, hospitals, universities, museums and charities.
More than 50 papers will be presented at the conference, focusing on topics including business archives, banking and finance, health and medicine, the media and academia. Papers will look at what interviews with the staff of institutions and organisations tell us about organisational history and memory. There will be plenty of opportunity for networking and discussion and the conference will bring together oral historians with historians of business, education and health.
