Humanizando la Deportación/Humanizing Deportation: A Digital Storytelling Project

Mural by Libre HEM

This digital storytelling project aims to make visible the range of humanitarian issues that proliferate in our current regime of mass human displacement. This UC-MEXUS funded collaboration between UC Davis and El Colegio de la Frontera Norte (with additional participation of colleagues from other institutions, including UC Berkeley) has assisted community members in producing a bilingual open access archive of personal stories about deportation (http://humanizandoladeportacion.ucdavis.edu/en/). The project team will present this archive, discussing the methodological, ethical and political issues that they have encountered in its creation.
