project description
I Can Hardly Believe the Changes is based on a collection of the first oral histories done by students about Gettysburg College. Created during a 1978 J-term class, the oral histories dealt with the college in the 1920s, the 1930s, and the 1940s. This project uses the audio from the oral histories along with archived media from Special Collections to create video interpretations. These videos contextualize the history of Gettysburg College by connecting archival images and physical spaces to the memories in the oral histories. The project utilizes Audacity and Shotcut to create the video interpretations and Scalar to organize the interpretation.
