Section Information for Fall 2022
Community engaged history sets a participatory methodological pathway towards shared authority between academic scholars and people living past legacies in the present. It is a reciprocal, collaborative, and multivocal ethic to research that combines oral, documentary, and archival approaches. Community engaged history provides an especially appropriate mode for expanding inclusive, diverse narratives in the field. In this seminar, we begin with immersion in literature and build skills for practice. We then apply theoretical learning to embark on a community requested project based in Northern Virginia that connects to the ongoing research for the professor's project, For a Sovereign Generation: Indigenous Rights Activists, 1985-2000. Students take on researcher roles in face-to-face sessions with the selected community partner for the course. This course includes public history products in its assignments.
