A call for volunteers: The COVID-19 Pandemic has affected all of us in many different ways and we are all eyewitnesses to the events that have been unfolding the last few weeks. This is a time for us to record our daily experiences, thoughts, and feelings in diary form, either in writing or video. SC&A envisions collecting and preserving the stories of the Wright State University community (students, faculty, and staff) and Miami Valley residents. The goal is to preserve the stories of our daily lives during the crisis and to provide future historians, researchers, and students with information and data on life in the Miami Valley during the Pandemic.
Please take the time each day to record your activities, thoughts, and/or feelings in diary form. The entries can be handwritten, typed, or in video format, and be as long or short as you want. Don’t worry about handwriting, spelling, or punctuation. Photos welcome! The goal is to capture your personal experiences. And remember, these diaries will be available to researchers, so please keep that in mind.
For questions about the project or to submit a diary, please email the SC&A staff at firstname.lastname@example.org.
UPDATE: We now have a Document Your Story homepage, where you can find the latest information on this project.
