The Mapping Diaspora working group continues its activities with monthly meetings involving UC Berkeley faculty and graduate students, developers, and a filmmaker/digital-storyteller.
Each meeting combines focused and multidisciplinary collection research with the critical examination of emerging platforms, bridging the analog and the digital, the on-line and the off-site.
It’s an exciting process of multi-faceted discovery. The feedback from a participant, following the last meeting, could not be more to the point:
Each of these Mapping Diaspora meetings has been a small joy, a reminder of what research looks like with sample sizes of 1 or 2 instead of thousands or millions, when one has enough time to pay attention to the individual and learn its story.
