Professors Greta Earnest and Karen Cannell (Library);Professors Isabella Bertoletti and James Cascaito (Foreign Languages);† Professor Daniel Levinson Wilk (American History);† Professor Karen Scheetz (Fashion Design). (2009-2010)
- This project proposed the establishment of an on-going web-ready Archives of Oral History to be housed in the FIT Library which would record the personal experiences of a wide cross-section of the FIT community.
- This would include men and women who were part of FITís formative years as well as mainstays and current members of our community who reflect our diverse cultures, organizations and the like.
- The project also includes opportunities for FIT journalism students to create video stories.
- For the pilot, Professors Barry Ginsberg and Elaine Stone were interviewed.
