Mapping Public History Projects about COVID 19

The IFPH started a collaboration with Made By Us to map projects that collect, archive, and document lives and stories during the COVID 19 pandemy. “COVID-19, a global pandemic in a world that’s more interconnected than ever before, presents us with a historic moment. It’s an unwelcome one, to be sure, but ours nonetheless. we know our day-to-day experiences, stories, artifacts and recollections will become the primary source for future generations to learn “what it was like.”” (Made By Us)

Made By Us brings history to younger generations in innovative and meaningful ways, so they have more fuel to power the future. While they started to map projects in the United States, the IFPH is happy to join and help map international projects.
