Difficult Dialogues, a Ford Foundation-funded project, is part of the University of Washington's Southeast Asian American Pluralism project. Students in 5 different courses chose projects that included such non-traditional components as oral history interviews, map-making and performance. This audio-rich website documents the studentsí projects, explores their experience in doing this new type of work, and their personal connections to their project.
I interviewed students on their process and experience doing the project and recorded their project presentations. I combined their projects (writing, images, and still photos from the performances) with their interviews to create a full picture of the breadth of their individual projects as well as the project as a whole.
