The purpose of this project is to document 20 years of cross-cultural exchanges between the people and the institutions of Moldova and those of Peace Corps Moldova. The end results will be:

  • a digital collection of oral history or interviews of current and former PC/M staff, PCVs & RPCVs, host families, partner organizations (government, NGOs, schools, clinics, businesses, etc), and other host country nationals (HCNs) who participated in activities and engaged with PC/M in some aspect (such as former students or neighbors of PCVs)
  • a book highlighting 20 years of projects and impact of PC/M
  • after completing service, a Masters of Arts in History Thesis from the University of San Diego

Currently I am in the research stage. I will start interviews in October or November 2011. The digital collection will be posted online as they are transcribed and translated. The history book for PCM will be published in 2013 in time to celebrate the 20 years of PCM. Writing the thesis take place over time and be defended during the fall 2013 semester.
