HI 370 Public History

Body

A seminar course studying the ways in which history is put to “public” use. Attention will focus on ways representations of the past are marshalled to create and reproduce “usable” meanings and how these meanings have come into conflict. Students will also be involved in a public history project applying their skills and knowledge in a community-based research initiative.

Prerequisite: 3 credits in History
