DALN on WABE 90.1 FM: “GSU Maps the Human Genome Of Literacy, One Story at a Time”

“A project at Georgia State University is seeking people’s personal stories about reading and writing. So far, it’s collected more than 6,000 such stories, in partnership with Ohio State University, and stored them in an archive called the Digital Archives of Literacy Narratives.

WABE sat down with assistant professor of English Dr. Michael Harker, who co-directs the archives, to talk about what kind of stories they’re seeking, exactly, as well as the story submitted by a famous Georgian from Plains. They also listened to a couple of stories people have already submitted.”
