Have you heard about DHS’ COVID Chronicles Delaware?
CCDE is the rapid response collecting of Delawareans’ experiences during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Wonder why collecting during the pandemic matters?
Join DHS Head Curator Leigh Rifenburg and University of Delaware professor Dael Norwood to learn more about the COVID Chronicles Delaware project and how future historians and researchers can utilize a collection like CCDE in their research, teaching, and helping people make connections to the past.
COVID Chronicles Delaware asks Delawareans to reflect on their experiences living through the COVID-19 pandemic and capture them through writing, art, image, or song. Submissions to CCDE will become part of the permanent DHS digital collection to serve individually and collectively as primary sources for future generations.
