Re/Collecting - An Ethnic Studies Memory Project of California's Central Coast

Oct 12, 2012

The Re/Collecting Project is an "ethnic studies memory project of California's Central Coast"—you can call it Re/Co for short. Our aim is to digitally capture and make publicly accessible the rich history of the diverse—yet under-documented—communities of the region, which includes San Luis Obispo and northern Santa Barbara counties. The images, documents, stories, and mementos that we digitize generally cannot be found in any public repositories. Instead, they reside with individuals—in their family albums, in their attics or garages, in their memories. By digitizing these materials, this project will make centrally and publicly available historically significant materials and stories. We thus seek to encourage community and academic research by providing information-rich materials for a regional understanding of these local communities.
