The Where Are You From? (WAYF) Project collects interviews, narratives, examples, and experiences of migration and mobility from students, faculty, staff at Wake Forest University and from permanent residents, green-card holders, foreign-born naturalized citizens, as well as undocumented residents, refugees, and US citizens in Winston-Salem, High Point, Greensboro, North Carolina, and the surrounding community. The Where Are You From? Project encourages a new approach to understanding migration, based on the premise that everyone shares a story of mobility. All participants share their story in their own words.
This project is made possible in part by funding from the North Carolina Humanities Council and other grants from Wake Forest University.
ALSO, if you are interested in including this: I am currently working with Chelcie Rowell (ZSR Library’s Digital Initiatives Librarian) to create a complete collection of uncut WAYF interviews for open access. Stay tuned!
Our goalThe DH Community is a program of Wake Forest's Humanities Institute. We are faculty from across campus interested in investigating the emergence of digital humanities as a field of study, and its relevance and usefulness as a research and teaching tool in the humanities.
