Explorations in Public History (Canceled)

Eileen Scully

This class introduces students to the fundamentals of Public History, meaning history that is generated for wide audiences through collaborations with communities, stakeholders, and professional academics. Through student-led discussions and short weekly assignments, students will develop a working knowledge of Public History, its scope, controversies and opportunities. A major component of the course is our partnership with a local elementary school, which opens the way for students to gain first-hand experience in creating and using historical materials in mentorship and educational outreach. The instructor will assist students in completing the background check that is required whenever working with elementary school students.
