Vietnam Remembered: Reflections on a War - An Interactive Learning Resource


Wednesday, 3 August, 3:45 - 5:15 pm
Forum: Learning Projects
Room 502B

This CD, "Vietnam Remembered: Reflections on a War," is the culmination of a web project that solicited remembrances and commentaries from over 5,000 individuals between 1996-2004. It features a dramatic narrative of over 100 photographs taken during the Vietnam War of American and Vietnamese soldiers, street children, Vietnamese civilians, and American protesters combined with commentaries by veterans, read by professional actors. Viewers can explore and consider the various stories told within the dramatic narrative with self-guided selections from the remembrances selected from the web site's collection.

The Educators Program presentation focuses on the process of creating the CD and organizing the content to preserve an historical or cultural picture of an era.
