HIST 5501 Making History Public: Boston College (Spring: 3 )

Course Description

In this course, students will work together to plan and produce a semester-long exhibition that will be displayed in the public spaces of Stokes Hall. This exhibit will document the 150 years (1863-2013) of the history of Boston College itself. Using the documentary, photographic, and other resources of the University Archives in Burns Library, students will identify themes (such as the changing nature of student body, the curriculum, and the campus) and the sources that best illustrate those themes. Students will select the items to be exhibited, prepare captions and other explanatory materials, and consider how best to display the results of their research.
