Corpora Collection

 Collection
Call Number: UA254

Scope and Contents

This collection contains videos created by students, faculty, and staff at Tufts University that were previously ingested into Corpora. Corpora was a platform that brought together humanities and science professionals, developers, metadata specialists, and librarians to develop new ways to search, cross-reference, visualize and interpret multimedia collections. The project resulted from Tufts faculty member Kris Manjapra's "Visualizating Oral Histories" project and was developed by Tufts Technology Service's Educational & Scholarly Technology Services. Corpora was decommissioned in 2021. The material in this collection consists of student work, including final projects for a course taught by Colin Orians; short films produced by Tufts Center for the Enhancement of Learning and Teaching (CELT) and Educational and Scholarly Technology Services; and short documentary films related to Tufts.
