Presentation by Sandi Ward for "Working Collections: Preserving Memory, Enhancing Heritage" at MARAC Morgantown, April 2019. The CR/10 Project (CR/10) is a video oral history project created by the East Asian Library, University Library System, University of Pittsburgh. CR/10 aims to preserve memories and impressions from people who experienced China's Great Proletarian Cultural Revolution, which lasted from 1966-1976. The collection also includes interviews with members of China's post-Cultural Revolution generations, who reflect on the circumstances under which they did, or did not, learn about the Cultural Revolution. Interviewees are given approximately 10 minutes to express their memories of or thoughts about the 10 years of China's Cultural Revolution. This presentation discussed the motivations of the project, its workflow and technical details, and its reception by researchers, faculty, and the public.
