This course invites students to be part of telling and shaping the history of Ursinus College through digital history projects.
What we’re doing
In this course, students collaboratively design, pitch, construct, and publicly disseminate digital group projects based on materials from the Ursinusiana Archive. Guest speakers share their own experience with digital/public history and provide feedback on the students’ work in progress. Projects launch at the end of the semester and ultimately will be part of the College’s 2019-2020 sesquicentennial celebrations.
