What we’re doing

In this course, students collaboratively designed, pitched, constructed, and publicly disseminated digital group projects based on materials from the Ursinusiana Archive. During the semester, guest speakers shared their own experience with digital/public history and provided feedback on the students’ work in progress. Projects were launched at the end of the semester and ultimately will be part of the College’s 2019-2020 sesquicentennial celebrations.
