Radcliffe Institute, Harvard: Schlesinger Library Awarded Grant to Create Comprehensive Digital Media Archive of #metoo. “The Schlesinger Library on the History of Women in America at Harvard’s Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study has embarked on a large scale project to comprehensively document the #metoo movement and the accompanying redefinitions of gender-based harassment and sex in the workplace. Through the #metoo Digital Media Collection, Schlesinger Library will provide enduring scholarly access to content including social media conversations, press stories, and multimedia declarations and rebuttals: resources which are now pervasive in our collective consciousness and social media feeds, yet will prove acutely vulnerable in the long-term, as propriety platforms, individual user-accounts, and the ever-changing landscape of the Web continually transform.”
