This course, co-taught by History and English professors, invites students to be part of telling and shaping the history of Ursinus College through digital history projects.
The projects are now public:
Bears Make GSA History
Breaking Ground: A History of Construction, Destruction and Renovation at Ursinus College
Ursinus Remembers: Experience and Memory in the Face of Tragedy
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.
