Creating the Historical Record for the Future

We are living in an unprecedented and extraordinary time. The Massasoit Community College Archive and Special Collections wishes to capture and preserve our community's history during the COVID-19 pandemic. This special collection will become part of the Archive and Special Collections where future generations can experience and learn from this event through our community's first-hand accounts.

Are you keeping a journal or diary of this time? Has this been part of a class assignment? Please consider sharing your story and donating your expressions to the Massasoit Community College Archive's COVID-19 Project.

 

The project seeks to document how the Massasoit community is carrying on with studies, research, work, and life — both physically and emotionally during this time.

WE ARE INTERESTED IN:

  • Stories from everyone! No matter your age, profession, or background, anyone is welcome to submit.

  • Stories of students and faculty and the remote teaching experience, MCC staff, first responders, medical professionals, people in isolation, supermarket employees, and anyone with a story to tell.

  • Submit written journals or diaries, photo essays, video or audio recordings, zines, poetry, or any additional creative types of documentation. 

  • Document of personal experiences of a single day, a daily diary for several weeks, reflective weekly journals—whatever time frame and in whatever medium chosen. 

Now is the time to journal, write, draw, record, etc. Get your children involved or

save their school assignments on this topic for us.
