HIST 4951 Making History Public (Fall/Spring: 3 )

Course Description

In this course students will collaborate to produce a public exhibition displayed in the new Stokes Hall. With help from the instructor and librarians, students will explore the riches of Boston College's special collections and rare books, determine what story to tell using this material, choose and research items, and write labels for the exhibition--all with an eye to teaching those who view the exhibit something important and compelling about the past. Students will also create an online version of the exhibition. This course allows students to make historical knowledge public via exhibitions both real and virtual.
