The Digital Video Research Archive of Morris, Sword, and Clog Dancing at Boston University The Digital Video Research Archive is a research initiative built on the work of Anthony G. Barrand and Francisco J. Ricardo, Ph.D. (UNI '99) at Boston University. Its foundation is a unique thirty-year chronological record of change and non-change of dance movement and accompaniment-style through aging and generational replacement of dancers. This library comprises several thousand performances whose material is searchable through a simple but multilayered interface intended to support both basic search and more complex hermeneutic research in this area.
