Explorations in Public History (HIS4106.01)

Eileen Scully

This class introduces students to the fundamentals of Public History, that is, history that is generated for wide audiences, through collaborations with communities, stakeholders, and professional academics. Working closely with the Park McCullough House Association, Crossett Library, the independent Village School in North Bennington, and various guest specialists, students in this course will develop a working knowledge of Public History, and gain first-hand experience in creating and using historical materials in educational outreach work with elementary school students.

Prerequisites: Integral elements of the course involve working with local elementary school students. To comply with federal regulations, students will therefore need to complete a criminal background check.
