The Course

HIST 358 – HISTORY HARVEST: COLLABORATIVE DIGITAL PUBLIC HISTORY

Students work with instructor and community collaborators to host a “History Harvest,” an event during which community members share personal stories about and artifacts related to a particular event, historical development, and/or place. The class will catalog the images and recordings gathered and use them to present digital exhibits. Readings include relevant historical works for context and methodological works on public and digital history skills needed for the project. Students will develop hands-on experience with these skills. May be repeated to a maximum of 6 undergraduate hours, if topics vary.
