    "Te Waha Kairongorongo e" The Voice in Time and Space

    The National Oral History Association of New Zealand (NOHANZ) invites abstract submissions for our
    biennial conference to be held at the University of Waikato, Hamilton, Wednesday 28 and Thursday
    29 of November 2018. This year the theme of our conference focuses on the sweet sound of the
    voice, the singers of tales (te waha kairongorongo), storytellers, and the resonance of the voice
    through time and space. How is oral history transient through time and space? How do the voices of
    our participants travel through, or resonate in, time and space as a vehicle for memory? What
    significance do we find in the spaces we use to access, listen to, co-create, and present voices that
    give meaning and memory to the past? How is the notion of “time” apparent in the transmission of
    memory across generations of voices?
    We invite presenters to submit abstracts that engage with the broad variety of oral history work,
    from memory and narrative, to myth, storytelling, methodologies, presentations of oral history, and
    oral history theories. We would love to hear about your projects, your interviewees, and the ways in
    which you have engaged with the voices of the past. We invite attendees to submit abstracts for
    either a panel or roundtable (90mins in length), a 20 minute individual paper, a workshop, or a 5-
    minute lightning project presentation. Individual papers will be 20mins in length.
    Please submit your abstract to Dr Nēpia Mahuika at nmahuika@waikato.ac.nz or to Lynette Shum at
    nohanzconference2018@gmail.com by Friday 29 June 2018.
    If you are submitting an abstract for a paper be sure to include the following:
    Title of Paper
    Abstract of no more than 250 words
    Name of Presenter
    Institutional affiliations if any
    Email address
    Preference for panel/roundtable/individual/workshop/lightning

    Panels should include abstracts for each presenter (20min per paper) and an overall panel abstract
    as well.
    Roundtables can just include one abstract for the roundtable and a list of speakers (no more than
    four in a 60min session).
    Workshops ideas can be discussed with the conference organisers, please email above
    Lightning project presentations should be no more than 5 minutes with no AV content
    Abstracts will be accepted on the condition that presenters register for the conference.

    The phrase ‘waha kai rongorongo’ refers to a pleasant voice or singing voice. It is used here to refer to the
    voice of the past. See ‘He Tangi mo Hinekauika’, Ngā Mōteatea, p. 338.

  1. Kia ora Ally,

    A pity that there was insufficient demand for the course to go ahead. Unfortunately the Wellington course is already fully subscribed. We (the Alexander Turnbull Library Outreach Services) are taking names for a waiting list however, as if we get enough people, we will consider adding a second course earlier than the end of the year, when the next one would be due.

    To confirm your place on this list, please email atloutreach@dia.govt.nz
    If you have any other questions or comments, please email the same address, or call Lynette on 04 462 3977
