We Need You!

"Rest Time" by Michelle Meiklejohn

NZ-RED is an online community project led by Victoria University of Wellington to collect the reading experiences of New Zealanders from the nineteenth century to the present day. It’s only through the contributions of as many people as possible that we can attempt to uncover patterns of reading in the past, so we’re going to need your help…

We will be asking for volunteers to identify and record instances of reading in diaries, letters, autobiographies, and memoirs. You can be anywhere in the world, and contribute your discoveries to the online New Zealand Reading Experience Database currently in development.

If this interests you, we encourage you to follow this blog or send us an email so we can keep you updated as the project develops.
