Texas Czech Legacy Project
Texas Czech Legacy Project: http://www.laits.utexas.edu/txczechproject/home
The goal of this Project is to create a central place documenting the language, culture, and history of ethnic Czech Moravians in Texas. The Project’s main initiative is the building of an open-access digital Texas Czech Dialect Archive (TCDA) of audio-recordings gathered from ethnic Czech Moravians in Texas since the 1970s through the 2000s.
The Project’s mission is to create a community resource for Texas Czechs as well as a scholarly resource for anyone fascinated by this population’s language, culture, and history. As a legacy archive, the TCDA will be a central repository for irreplaceable oral histories, spoken in the Texas Czech dialect, reflecting the change in the historically Czech Moravian communities of Texas from the early 1850s to the present.
