HIST 202 Public History Practicum: History in the News (2)
This course involves students in the practice of public history. Students will plan three public history panels for the popular “History in the News” Series at the Willamette Heritage Center, which puts the news in historical and local perspective. Students select a topic of immediate interest and newsworthiness, identify and invite experts to a panel discussion, research scholarship on the subject, publicize the event, and write questions for the panel (moderated by Professor Dunlap and broadcast on WKMUZ). Previous panels have considered renaming historical monuments and Native mascots, the #MeToo movement, and reaction to the 2016 Presidential election.
