Identities Online Project

By MEGHAN MEIER

Funded by a U.S. State Department grant, Kennesaw State University faculty and students at the Museum of History and Holocaust Education launched their first online production.

Partnered with Hassan II University in Casablanca, their mission was to find the truth in
the meaning in identity when exploring different lifestyles in Muslim society. Students gathered oral statements and photo journals from local Muslims and in their research investigated Muslim cultures in American and in Moroccan culture.

“Students together set out an exploration of identity,“ said Julia Brock, curator of the Museum of History and Holocaust Education. “So, what does it mean to be American, what does it mean to be Muslim, and what does it mean to be Moroccan?”

After completing all research, students combined all materials into a virtual format where all stories and photographs can be seen.

All collaborative works from Kennesaw State and Hassan II University can be found at the Identities home website.
