This meeting was to be the first of many international exchanges, and was a catalyst for the publication of an International Journal of Oral History (from 1980 until 1990) and a series of collaborative, international oral history anthologies, (47) In 1996 the international oral history conferences were formalized within a newly constituted International Oral History Association (IOHA), for which representatives from each geographical region were elected to a Council responsible for the biennial conference and a bilingual (Spanish and English) newsletter and journal, Words and Silences/Palabras y Silencios.
There have been several successors or alternatives to the International Journal of Oral History, which lapsed in the late 1980s: Life Stories/Recits de Vie, Colchester, Biography and Society Research Committee, International Sociological Association, 1985-1989; Ronald Grele, ed., Subjectivity and Multi-Culturalism in Oral History, The International Annual of Oral History (New York: Greenwood Press, 1992); International Yearbook of Oral History and Life Stories (Oxford: Oxford University Press, 1992-1996); Memory and Narrative, book series (London: Routledge, 1997-2004; from 2004 published by Transaction); Words and Silences (journal of the IOHA from 1997).
In her original commentary for our IOHA Istanbul panel, "`Sharing Authority': Oral History and the Collaborative Process," Linda Shopes urged us to take important steps toward our practice and analysis of collaborative research: 1) invite our narrators to discuss collaboration with us, as opposed to being discussed, at conferences (a practice, I should add, that is underway at the annual conference of the American Folklore Society); 2) explicate our specific collaborative processes so that we and others can analyze more closely the practices that enable us to "share authority"; and 3) perhaps most importantly, assess and determine when the use of collaboration is--or maybe is not--appropriate.
Linda Shopes was right in her original commentary for our IOHA Istanbul panel, when she noted that there are "implications for changes in public policy" in this project too.
