Embodied Historiography: The Veterans Project aims to provide a live forum for ASU veterans of the American military to share their stories with the larger communities of ASU, Tempe, and Phoenix. This synthesis of oral history, performance, and the digital humanities will culminate annually in series of live events to be presented as part of the Salute to Service week at ASU. Each year the project will entail working together with ASU veterans to create and document performances unique to their experiences. By fusing methodologies from oral history and theatre together with new
technologies developed specifically within this project, this project aims to create a series of performances that are both historical and historiographical.
