Convener’s Note: Media Rise’s Quarantined Across Borders Collection Institutional Repository Document uri icon


  • Quarantined Across Borders is our first entirely virtual multimedia online initiative. 80+ authors participated in this initiative from 30+ countries. Our goal with QAB was to create a wide platform for a broad range of diverse voices to share their quarantine stories in a timely fashion, especially from/about borderland, immigrant, and diasporic communities. All entries were submitted by May 15, 2020. Every day in June, we published three stories. We started at the end of Asian/Pacific heritage month and the beginning of Pride Month. We witnessed a global uprising as part of the #BlackLivesMatter movement this month as the stories were published.
