This presentation uses the framework of “slow disasters” to consider the ways in which the theory and practice of digital public history is transforming in the wake of climate change and global pandemics. This presentation will focus on the work of The COVID-19 Oral History Project—a partner project of the Journal of the Plague Year: A COVID-19 Archive—as well as digital public history projects associated with The Anthropocenes Network.
