Covid19@CMC Digital Archive

Covid19@CMC is a digital archive documenting the lived experience of the Covid-19 pandemic among the members of the Claremont McKenna College community. The purpose of the archive is to preserve interviews and associated materials reflecting this extraordinary time.

Why the Archive Matters

Capturing History

Through the digital archive, the CMC History Department aims to provide a space where our community can express their understandings, hopes, and fears about the pandemic and where future researchers, policy makers, activists and artists can reflect on the current crisis and its lessons for the future.
