The UMass Lowell Southeast Asian Digital Archive seeks to create a sustainable, user-friendly repository of cultural heritage materials from Southeast Asian American communities in the Lowell, Mass. region.
These materials document experiences of Southeast Asian Americans in the region for over four decades. Our goal is to use a number innovative, efficient digitization and processing technologies to provide a resource to scholars, teachers, students, and community members.
This project is made possible by support from the National Endowment for the Humanities, the UMass Creative Economy Initiatives Fund, the Lowell Cultural Council, and the Chancellor’s 2020 Challenge Grant.
For a preview of current collections, please visit the SEADA Inventory. Additional materials are available at the Center for Lowell History.
