Project Detail


Project Vietnam

Partner(s): WGBH

Project Vietnam provides Columbia University students unique access to heretofore inaccessible material from the landmark 1983 documentary Vietnam: A Television History, co-produced by Boston's public television station, WGBH. Funded by a grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services, Project Vietnam is a partnership between CCNMTL, WGBH, and the University of Massachusetts-Boston to digitize, preserve, and disseminate primary source materials created for the 13-part series, which examines in depth the causes and consequences of the Vietnam War. Project Vietnam 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 are integrating Project Vietnam into their curricula.
