Access back issues"The literate lives of historically marginalized populations are underrepresented in formal archives and collective memories. Therefore, to reconstruct these scenes, we needed to reach out to community members, local libraries, and cultural centers. However, physical access alone is not enough. The local literacy scenes cannot be understood apart from national and global literacy scenes, and existing tools and methods limit conceptual access as well. We suggest that the digital humanities offers a productive solution to such challenges."
