SOHA Membership

Hello from the Southwest Oral History Association! Please join or renew your membership today.

Staying involved with SOHA gives you access to our growing network of oral historians, archivists, storytellers and transcribers – from students to seasoned practitioners — who work together to share stories of real people and communities with the rest of the world. Your SOHA membership keeps you connected to other dedicated oral historians via our newsletters and conferences. 

As importantly, your membership supports our General Scholarships and Eva Tulene Watt Scholarships for Native Scholars as well as our Mini-Grants for local projects. These funds enable us to support the oral history work of college and university students and practitioners in local communities throughout our growing region. In addition, the scholarships and mini-grants enable recipients to share their work with you and other SOHA members at our annual conferences, an added benefit that has been greatly appreciated.  

We are very excited about the plans for our 2018 conference, starting with the theme Elevating Voices: Oral Histories of Resilience and Unity. It is scheduled for Friday, April 27 through Sunday, April 29 on the campus of California State University, Fullerton, with very reasonable and comfortable lodging available right next door at the Fullerton Marriott. And the even better news is that there is still time for you to submit a proposal! See the  Call for Proposals for more information about participating in the conference. We look forward to seeing you in Fullerton!
