Introduction to public history

This is a mixed undergraduate/graduate course (a configuration that I love.) I try to give students some experience in a wide range of public history practice through readings, site and class visits, and project work. In 2017, we did an oral history project with local seniors in collaboration with the Jule Collins Smith Museum of Fine Arts and the Auburn Housing Authority. In fall 2020, we’ll work with AHA seniors again on an exhibit for their meeting space.
