Memory of the New World
The Memory of the New World Project was an initiative to recognize outstanding writing and articles that are crucial to understand the common heritage of the New World. It was begun in November 2011 by Kazuo Leblanc.
Articles were judged and added to the collection based on the following criteria:
- History: The article documented a historical event for a nation or the New World that irrevocably changed its course.
- Cultural: The article explained a cultural phenomenon unique to the New World.
- Pioneer: The article documented the first presence of a national institution, or an otherwise notable occasion.
- Literary: While not meeting any other criteria, the article demonstrated the finest writing a nation had to offer.
