This innovative open access archive documents personal stories of journalists who have been silenced and government processes that cannot be videotaped or photographed.

Contributing faculty include Celeste González de Bustamante and Jeannine Relly from the Center for Border and Global Journalism and the School of Journalism, Lawrence Gipe from the School of Art, and Verónica Reyes-Escudero, borderlands curator from Special Collections, and Erika Castaño, digital archivist with the University Libraries. The yearlong collaborative project was funded by the Confluencenter for Creative Inquiry at the University of Arizona.
