Free; ages 18+
The Syrian Archive develops open-source tools to document human rights violations around the world. Learn about the organization’s practice through a hands-on workshop introducing you to online research techniques. Facilitated by Lead Researcher Jeff Deutsch. A limited number of computers will be available for use, and we ask that participants bring their laptops if they have one.
The Syrian Archive aims to support human rights investigators, advocates, media reporters, and journalists in their efforts to document human rights violations in Syria and worldwide through developing new open source tools as well as providing a transparent and replicable methodology for collecting, preserving, verifying and investigating visual documentation in conflict areas.
Co-presented with PLASMA at the Department of Media Study, SUNY University at Buffalo.
