Dance Afghanistan's goal is to document, engage, and reflect on Afghanistan's contemporary culture through its recent dance history. As the world changes and the Afghan community is spread across dozens of countries, Afghan culture grows and changes to reflect the experiences of Afghans all over the world. Dance Afghanistan collects stories about a changing Afghanistan's experiences of dance, and provides a place for the community to share and explore the community's incredible dynamic culture.

"THROUGH MACALLA'S EYES" DIGITAL ARCHIVE
This is a digital archive built by Angela Schöpke, Natalia Holtzman, and Robert Pfaff in collaboration with the Bentley Historical Library. This digital archive's mission is to understand and interpret how the memory of the Michigan 339th infantry division has been impacted by repatriation efforts, and how that memory is negotiated through memorials and human interaction in a variety of media.
Digital archive built via University of Southern California's Scalar 2.0 platform. Archive available at: http://scalar.usc.edu/works/polar-bear-expedition-digital-archival-collection/index
