New Roots/Nuevas Raíces Roundtable Discussion
September 8, 2015 @ 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm
Since 2007, faculty, staff, and students at UNC have conducted oral history interviews on issues related to Latino migration to North Carolina and the formation of Latino communities. This project, called New Roots, was awarded an NEH grant in 2014 to make the collection accessible to new regional, national, and global audiences, particularly within Spanish-speaking Latino and Latin American communities. At this Tell About the South, hear from New Roots partners, including the Latino Migration Project, the Southern Oral History Program, and University Libraries, about their work to date on creating a bilingual website, digital catalogs in English and Spanish, and outreach with Latino communities, K-12 educators, and researchers internationally.
