When We Are No More poster image

Today, we stand at the very edge of a vast, uncharted digital landscape, where our collective memory is stored in ephemeral bits and bytes and lives in air-conditioned server rooms. What sources will historians turn to in 100, let alone 1,000 years to understand our own time if all of our memory lives in digital codes that may no longer be decipherable?

A faculty-led project developed by the Stanford Libraries' Center for Interdisciplinary Digital Research (CIDR) was recently featured in Stanford Report, which describes it thus: “...a digital humanities project led by Stanford historian Tom Mullaney is creating a map that illustrates the ongoing and multifaceted impact of funeral reform and grave relocation in China. In the last 15 years, grave relocation has been taking place in China on a massive scale. To date, some 15 million deceased people's remains have been moved.” CIDR developers David McClure and Karl Grossner, together with a small SUL team, have been working on the project with Professor Mullaney over the past 18 months, and Mullaney presented a synopsis of the project at the Stanford Libraries’ annual donor event in October, 2015.
