The American Lives Project combines oral histories, historical documents, artifacts, sound and visual media in a searchable digital collection that creates a research environment for our multidisciplinary approach to the study of American culture.
The project is structured to break down barriers between categories of primary resources for research, study and teaching. A digital interface enables a fluid, immersive environment that allows users to see how the resources inform each other and the diverse ways we can "read" culture.
The Civil Rights Litigation Clearinghouse, collects documents and information from civil rights cases in specific case categories across the United Sates. Developed and maintained by the faculty and staff of Washington University in St. Louis, this resource is available to scholars, teachers, students, policymakers, advocates, and the public, to allow greater understanding of civil rights litigation in this country.
The Oral History Project is a collaboration between the American Culture Studies Program, the History Department, and Washington University Libraries. The program's focus centers on civil rights, citizenship, and activism, and neighborhood, religious, and ethnic communities.
