Home > News & Updates > Special Event: Recapping Project Vietnam

On June 9th, please join us at this special public event for a recap on Project Vietnam presented by CCNMTL's Mark Phillipson and Maria Janelli.

Project Vietnam is a partnership among CCNMTL, WGBH, and the University of Massachusetts-Boston to digitize, preserve, and disseminate primary source materials created for the 13-part series landmark documentary, Vietnam: A Television History, which examines in depth the causes and consequences of the Vietnam War.

Project Vietnam was funded by a grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services. It enables students to discover and watch full-length interviews and a range of stock footage; annotate, edit, and create sub-collections of these videos; and incorporate clips into multimedia projects. Faculty from Columbia University's Teachers College, Graduate School of Journalism, Department of History, and Department of East Asian Languages and Cultures have integrated Project Vietnam into their curricula.

Phillipson and Janelli will be joined by professors Margaret Crocco, William Gaudelli, and James Lap, who will describe their experiences incorporating Project Vietnam into their curricula.
