HIS 501 - Introduction to Applied History Credits: 3


Explores the practical application of historical skills and practices in a variety of settings (including business, government, and historical institutions such as museums, historic sites, archives, and historical societies), and the issues historians face when they preserve, interpret, and present the past to the general public. Through hands-on experience, students examine areas such as archive and manuscript curating, historical editing, oral history, material culture studies, museums, historic preservation, historical media production, and history on the World Wide Web. Special emphasis placed on the financial, legal, ethical, political, and interpretive issues faces by historians presenting the past to diverse audiences.
