The Salman Rushdie Archive Project

Posted by Tawnya Ravy on May 22, 2012

The Salman Rushdie Archive Project is a resource for Rushdie scholars and a platform for scholarship in Rushdie Studies. Salman Rushdie remains a culturally relevant author whose work and celebrity status consistently shape larger conversations about South Asian studies, geopolitics, and popular culture. While there are many blogs and websites devoted to opinions and information on Rushdie, there is no single web source for all the online data available on the author and his work.

SceneDEX - American Music Scenes Index

Posted by Micah Vandegrift on November 17, 2011

This is a project that has not been started yet. It is a personal and academic interest of mine, and I'd like to gather a group of collaborators to get it started. There are plenty of archives that already exist that hold these sorts of objects and materials - I'd like to create a webspace to cull these collections and provide a way for materials to be submitted, organized and archived.
