UCI Pandemic Histories Archive
In the 20-21 academic year, the School of Social Ecology offered a remote field study opportunity for students to document their own and others' experiences living through the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as their reflections or experiences on social justice issues including anti-Black and anti-Asian racism.  Archivists in the UCI Libraries then processed the material and built an online finding aid.  The material includes audio and video interviews, written reflections, photographs, and creative works like zines.
