Have you used oral history to research Russian environmental history?
We, Stephen Sloan and Mark Cave (co-editors), are seeking a contributor who has used oral history in a substantive way to research Russian environmental history. This individual would contribute a chapter to an anthology of scholars around the globe doing environmental oral history.
Despite the phenomenal growth of this approach, there has been little formal discussion among practitioners of the process and meaning of such investigations. This volume will be part of the Oxford Oral History Series. The editors have looked at our initial idea and are excited about the project.
While the content will be quite different, the format for the book will be akin to our last anthology project, Listening on the Edge: Oral History in the Aftermath of Crisis (Oxford UP, 2014—winner of the 2015 Oral History Association Book Award). Each chapter will begin with an approximately 3,000 word excerpt(s) of oral history followed by a 5,000 word critical analysis essay.
Currently, we have contributors from many regions, but, being aware of the important work that has been conducted in Russia, we hope that could be reflected in this title as well. If you have interest, additional questions, or would like more information, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
