Current project

Mind the Gap. 

Diaspora Archives in Italy and the United States

In collaboration with Harvard University, Mind the Gap seeks collect, preserve and disseminate the stories of immigrants (loosely articulated to include refugees, and various generations) through a digital humanities platform.  The three-part project begins with a contextualized platform that places people at the center of history, connecting them to events, places and subjects across the world. The second part of the project is the production of a live network through which people can connect and communicate in real time. The third and final part of the project is a teaching curriculum based on these stories that to be implemented in classrooms in Italy.
