Digital Archive of Literacy Narratives Collection Event

DALN LogoThe Digital Archive of Literacy Narratives, hosted through Ohio State University, is a “publicly available archive of personal literacy narratives in a variety of formats (text, video, audio) that together provide a historical record of the literacy practices and values of contributors, as those practices and values change.” At the 2015 Transitioning to College Writing Symposium, we invite you to submit your literacy narrative to the archive. Stations will be setup on Thursday night in Lamar Hall 206 (our Digital Humanities center) and in room #128 at the Jackson Avenue Center on Friday. You may record audio, video, or simply use the space to type out your literacy narrative. Release forms will be available, and we’ll take care of the uploading for you.
