Abstract

This presentation is a closer look at the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation-funded “Community Data Curation: Preserving, Creating, and Narrating Everyday Stories” grant recently awarded to the Wolfsonian Public Humanities Lab of Florida International University. The presentation will feature brief introductions to the Wolfsonian Public Humanities Lab, the grant itself, and the eight community partners in Miami-Dade and Broward Counties around which the grant revolves. The presentation will also explore the concept of post-custodial archiving, which greatly informs the work being done between WPHL and the partners. This is followed by a more specific exploration of some of our partner’s unique individual projects, how oral history collection and preservation is being approached and conducted, unique digital humanities tools we are working to implement with the partners, and the public-facing programming included in the grant.
