"Crowdsourcing Oral Histories: A New Approach to Public History and Gathering Data" Guneeta Singh Bhalla (Founder and Executive Director, The 1947 Partition Archive)
Thursday, March 15, 2018
206 Ingraham Hall
In this spring lectures series talk, I will discuss the recent interventions made by The 1947 Partition Archive in documenting a significant yet much-silenced moment in history, the 1947 Partition of India and Pakistan, through the use of crowdsourcing techniques that utilize modern technology. I will demonstrate how our platform has enabled documentation at a global scale in a short amount of time, while democratizing the preservation of historical memory.
