US Research Stay

POV, WGBH, Library of Congress

PhD researcher Alexandra embarked in the summer of 2018 on her semester-long research stay in the USA. As her research within the ÉXODOCS project is geared towards PBS (Public Service Broadcasting) documentaries, she spent the month of August doing archival research at and interviewing some of the people attached to:

  • POV in NYC (http://www.pbs.org/pov/)
    • POV is the longest-running independent documentary series in the history of US television.
  • WGBH in Boston (https://www.wgbh.org/)
    • WGBH is a PBS member station that services the Boston area. It also happens to be the headquarters of the AAPB (American Archives for Public Broadcasting).
  • Library of Congress in Washington D.C. (https://www.loc.gov/)
    • The Library of Congress houses part of the AAPB (American Archives for Public Broadcasting) as well.
