Where Are You From?


The Where Are You From? project captures narratives of movement and migration in video format. Alessandra Von Burg is working with Digital Initiatives Librarian Chelcie Rowell to preserve these scholarly outputs for the long term. The goal of this preservation effort is to create a humanities dataset accessible for the inquiry of other scholars, who may have unanticipated research questions different from those of the scholar who originated the project.

What will you build?

A digital map? A web exhibit? A course blog anthologized at the end of the semester? A collaboratively annotated critical edition of primary sources? Paintings or art prints digitized to support deep zoom? Or something else?

Whatever you imagine, we can build with you.
