As regular readers might have guessed, the Oral History Review staff has spent the last few months obsessing over oral history’s bright, digital future. However, now that special issue 40.1, Oral History in the Digital Age, is out, we’re taking a break — just a break! — to recall the oral history projects that run on something other than tagging and metadata. To that end, we were lucky enough to catch up with Professor Paul Ortiz, director of the Samuel Proctor Oral History Program (SPOHP) at the University of Florida. Founded by Dr. Samuel Proctor in 1967, SPOHP is one of the longest standing institutions in the discipline of oral history and, as you will learn in this podcast, responsible for a variety of excellent projects. Dr. Ortiz also gives us a sneak peak of SPOHP’s 2013-2014 Public Program line up. Surprise, surprise, it sounds fantastic.
