Preserving the life and work of Kashmiri-American poet Agha Shahid Ali (1949-2001), The Beloved Witness is a wonderful resource for literature teachers and enthusiasts. The collection, which includes over 100 items, explores "Ali's life and work [and] offer[s] an exemplary model for humanists to bear 'witness' to a world of lost tribes, of political and ethnic conflicts, of the pain of exile and of the possibility for transformation and reconciliation." The left-hand panel presents multiple ways to navigate the collection's items. Readers may browse all pieces or sort by medium (such as essays, photographs, or videos). Those with a specific inquiry can use the search bar. The various materials provide a window into Ali's creative process. For example, readers can view Ali's handwritten notes and listen to audio and video files of his poetry readings. The Beloved Witness is a project of the Digital Humanities Initiative and Hamilton College with support from the Mellon Foundation. Patricia O'Neill and Hena Ahmad are the project's principal investigators.
