Recollections: Reviving Personal Archives

Various letters and documents spread out on the table-top, and a hand parsing through them.

Recollections will bring the written fragments of people's lives - their autograph books, photo albums, letters, postcards, diaries, and other ephemera - back to life. 

Recollections: Reviving Personal Archives, headed by Professor Elaine Treharne, is dedicated to cataloging, digitizing, describing, curating and presenting the archives of those who've come before. These otherwise forgotten stories - in every single case - will inspire, move, and inform. 

Researchers: Mark York, Isabel Fryett, Carolyn Stein, Ella Ball, Emily Wilson, Karunya Bhramasandra
