Location: Durham Hall 137

A Journal of the Plague Year: An Archive of COVID-19 (JOTPY) has many purposes: to document, curate and preserve experiences of the COVID-19 pandemic for the historical record, to empower diverse communities to collect, share and interpret their own stories of the COVID-19 pandemic and to develop a model for rapid-response born-digital collecting practices, theories and ethical frameworks. One of JOTPY's most important functions is its role as a teaching and learning tool. JOTPY offers students and educators opportunities to work at, learn from and contribute to the archive. Students of all levels have contributed actively to our archive as contributors, curators and exhibit organizers.
