Rojika Sharma, selected to be the 2022-23 Archival Creators Fellow of South Asian American Digital Archive (SAADA)
Rojika Sharma, a first year Master’s student in Human Geography was selected 2022-23 Archival Creators Fellow of South Asian American Digital Archive (SAADA). Through the Archival Creators Fellowship Program, fellows partner with SAADA to create archival collections that reflect the histories and perspectives of marginalized groups within the South Asian American community. The theme of this year’s fellowship is place, with projects highlighting how South Asian Americans have made space for their communities in the geography of the American landscape. As a SAADA fellow, Rojika will focus on the Bhutanese-Nepali Community of Central Ohio, where she will gather stories in connection to land practices, attachment to place, and aspiration of community spaces. Her project will highlight the narratives and lived experiences of the South Asian refugees in the Midwest.
Job well done Rojika, and good luck with your project.
