XVI International Oral History Conference: Between Past and Future


International Oral History Association and the Czech Oral History Association invite you to participate in the Sixteenth International Oral History Conference, “Between Past and Future: Oral History, Memory and Meaning” that will be held in Prague, Czech Republic from 7 to 11 July 2010.

Oral history is a growing field within history: new methods, technologies and approaches as well as innovative perspectives and areas of research place it among the discipline’s most dynamic specializations. Not surprisingly, we are very excited about sharing our research and experiences in Prague. It is also the first time that the IOHA will gather in the ancient city of Prague, located in the heart of Europe. Indeed, the recent history of the Czech Republic can offer new perspectives into our collective past and give insights into our future.

We sincerely hope that you will be able to attend and contribute to the success of the meeting.

We are looking forward to seeing you in Prague.

The deadline for proposals for the Prague Conference is: September 6, 2009

Memories from Prison about MKO
Regardless of all the issues, training in prison challenged me and some of my friends, and its main factor was the same cabals, especially Mojahedin-e Khalgh Organization (MKO); it runs in the name of a religious prison and intended to manage the cells openly and secretly, and anyone who wanted to enter this cycle, had to accept the whole organization and its establishment.
