Tracking Sandy: Monmouth County Remembers: NJ Studies Journal

Tracking Sandy: Monmouth County Remembers
Melissa Ziobro


Abstract

This New Jersey Studies: An Interdisciplinary Journal article is a modified version of the exhibit text used in “Tracking Sandy: Monmouth County Remembers.” Guest-curated for the Monmouth County Historical Association (MCHA) by the author of this piece, this crowdsourced exhibit was installed in MCHA’s headquarters in October 2017. The text is being published in this format to allow distribution to a wider audience/in perpetuity after the exhibit has come down, and to ensure the stories shared for the creation of the exhibit can continue to be told. This is not intended to be a comprehensive history of Sandy’s impact globally, in the US, or even on the entire state of New Jersey (NJ) specifically, nor is it a thorough case study on the effectiveness of crowdsourcing community history (though that may be an interesting subject for another discussion).
