At the 2015 Organization of American Historians conference in St. Louis, we interviewed OUP authors and journal editors to understand their views on the history discipline. Gathering at the OUP booth, scholars – working in fields ranging from women’s history to racial history, cultural history to immigration history – discussed topics both professional and personal. As we gear up for this year’s conference in Providence, RI, we’re revisiting our conversations in the video series below, and we hope you’ll join the conversation online and at the OUP Booth.
What is the one word that all historians should be thinking about today?
What advice do you have for graduate students?
What role should historians play in conversations about contemporary issues?
How do you confront taboos in your scholarship?
How do historians get started on a new project?
What’s your position? Let us know in the comments or by tweeting @OUPAmhistory.
