Migrant Object Exhibit
Yale students enrolled in HIST/ ERM 129 "Topics in California History" were asked to choose an image representing their migration to New Haven. They then created metadata and text to give context and meaning to their objects. Representing an exercise in collaborative digital curation, this path asks us to think about the collective and personal aspects of migration.

Discussion of "Migrant Object Exhibit"
Great work!Making visible the various pathways to and through the Americas is an important project and your work in putting together migration stories through personal artifacts shows the deeply intimate nature of this topic. Your stories reflect the broader experiences of a nation made of newcomers and receiving communities, of differences and similarities, and of hope in possibilities, opportunities and (hopefully) a collective future. I really appreciate your attention to the everyday artifacts of our lives that help us tell these stories. Well done!
