The mission of the Michigan Oral History Association (MOHA) is to provide for effective cooperation and communication among persons, programs, and institutions concerned with the techniques, uses, and promotion of oral history in Michigan.
Based on the foundation of the Michigan Oral History Council organized in 1979, the name of the non-profit was changed to the Michigan Oral History Association in 1994.
Who We Are
The Michigan Oral History Association serves people who are interested in methods and techniques of the oral history process as a means of preserving the unique memory of people, places, events, and ideas. It promotes and educates about oral history as a resource for capturing on electronic media attitudes and emotions not otherwise preserved. The pool of presenters includes experienced oral history practitioners, archivists, database managers, video producers, authors, professional transcribers, journalists, and teachers. Presenters participate in history-related conference sessions, conduct workshops, and serve as facilitators for state and regional forums. They contribute their energy and expertise without pay.
