This practical project follows on from the theoretical course, MUSEUMS: GENDER, SEXUALITY, RACE, AND CLASS, taught by our visiting guest professor, Fulbright Fellow Dr. Amy Levin. Working in small groups of two or three, students selected a person or a theme from the rotating Twitter feed @WeAreXpats of the Expat Archive Center in the Hague. Their task was to develop a digital “scrapbook” exploring themes in the experiences of migration, and working and living abroad.
