HIST 3510 Public History

This course introduces students to the non-teaching professional uses of history. Students will examine the theories, methods, varieties, and problems associated with what is called applied or public history. Because the history if every community is embedded in the life stories and experiences of its members, learning units will focus on the use of oral history in interpreting a community’s past, enabling students to understand history from the bottom up. This is a Writing Intensive (WI) course.
