Project Vietnam: Three Years of Multimedia Analysis

In this University Seminar, CCNMTL's Mark Phillipson and Maria Janelli will present Project Vietnam, a three year collaboration with Boston's public television station, WGBH. Funded by the IMLS, Project Vietnam provides Columbia University students unique access to heretofore inaccessible material from the landmark 1983 documentary Vietnam: A Television History, co-produced by WGBH. The project 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.

Mark and Maria will be joined by Professors Margaret Crocco, William Gaudelli, and James Lap, who will describe their own experiences incorporating Project Vietnam into their curricula.

Date: June 9, 2pm
Location: 203 Butler
Phone: (212) 854-9058
