The question of how subjective identities are composed in the oral-history interview has been the focus of much recent scholarship. This one-day conference of the Warwick Oral History Network, organized by Angela Davis (Department of History, University of Warwick) and Andrea Hajek (Institute of Advanced Study, University of Warwick), aimed to reflect upon the current status of the field and address the challenges of the future. Themes considered were the role of gender in the composure of subjective identities; the gendered intersubjectivity of narrator and listener; the influence of class, politics and ethnicity on the formation of subjectivities; and inter and trans-generational memory. A diverse range of papers considered subjects which included parenting as a role and identity, the influence of migration on identities and identity practices, and the experiences of women as activists in 1970s Europe.
