The academic committee for the upcoming ACRPS conference "Oral History: Concepts, Methods, and Research Agendas in the Arab Context" received around 70 research proposals. After assessing the proposals, the authors will present their research at the conference, which will be held by the Beirut branch from February 21 to February 23, 2014.

The conference utilizes a historical approach to viewing Arab history, and is structured around three themes:

1.    Concepts, Methods, and Tools of Oral History

2.    Applied Sociology, Culture, Politics, and Economics

3.    New Approaches toward Marginalized People in Oral History
