This is a work-in-progress project in digital humanities. We have developed a visual analytic prototype to facilitate the analysis of curated video/audio interview testimonies about human rights. The curated data are stored in Stories Matter, an open source database developed by The Centre for Oral History and Digital Storytelling (COHDS) at Concordia University
