This large collaborative project involved researchers from Bucknell University and California Lutheran University interested in a rather compelling diary. The document in question was kept by a young woman from 1943 French colonial Indochina and the journey she took while writing the diary. In 2004, a group of students retraced the footsteps of the young woman, and this website documents their findings and experiences. The project was led by Professor David Del Testa, and visitors to the project site can read biographies of each student, download their respective diaries, and also download the original journal written by Claudie Beaucarnot in 1943. Also, the site contains a "Navigating the Digital Journey" section where visitors can view a detailed map of the journey.
