About Chinese Whispers

Chinese Whispers is a multi-faceted interdisciplinary project about contemporary folk
memories of the Chinese who helped build the Transcontinental Railroad and settlements
of the American West.

The project takes shape in two main formats: as place-based community storytelling
productions taking place at sites along the route of the Transcontinental Railroad,
envisioned to unfold from California to Utah, and as an interactive, online mapping
platform that aggregates community stories with locative social, cultural and historical
data. A pilot Sierra Nevada storytelling production took place in 2009, and a Bay Area
production is in progress.

We are in research and development on the web project, Chinese Whispers: Mapping
the TracesSM. Using locative media to bring together humanities research and vernacular
content, the project will innovate web tools that combine digital mapping, geo-referenced
research data, and community storytelling to convey this overlooked history in an
accessible way.

We collaborated with the Center for Sierra Nevada Studies on Chinese Whispers:
Mapping the TracesSM and the Centers Director Emeritus, historian Gary Noy on initial
set of research, and Chinese Whispers is advised by a prominent board of Humanities,
civic engagement and technology advisors including nationally renowned historian Jack
Tchen of NYU, who co-founded the Museum of Chinese in the Americas, NY.
