Well, folks, here we are – last two weeks of my Digital Internship. I have completed a lot of things to date. I uploaded some pictures to the Arkansas Foodways Project website. I also finished the final draft of the Life Interrupted blog that I wrote. Mainly about the documentary Time of Fear (which you can view HERE) and the reunion of the internees in Arkansas to educate their families and the people of Arkansas. Believe it or not, there are many people living right here in Arkansas (and even outside Arkansas!) who were not aware that TWO internment camps were located in the state. Education is a great way to keep the memory alive so that we do not repeat the same mistakes.
I am continuing to edit my Carl E. Bailey website. The UALR CAHC has his entire collection, so its the perfect opportunity to view everything he did – from correspondence to legal documentation to pictures. Its a great collection that I am excited to explore for my potential thesis!
Next week is my last week as the Digital Intern! There are only a few other things on my list to do, and hopefully their include either born digital or coding situations. Until then, enjoy your week!
