Thinking Historically about Covid-19

Thinking Historically about Covid-19

The purpose of this course will be to help students think historically. When historians study the past, they are invariably affected by their current moment. In turn, the study of the past enables us to see the present in a new light. The present affects the questions we pose to our historical evidence, while study of the past raises new questions about our own historical moment. To help you learn how to think in this way, we will study the current Covid pandemic in light of research into past pandemics. Students will share the fruits of their new historical awareness by collaboratively creating a website that will place the Covid pandemic into historical context.

HNRS 3000 Book Club

“The first rule about Book Club is that you do talk about Book Club.” Book Club is an honors course designed to allow small groups of faculty and students to read and discuss specially selected books. Discussion groups will be limited to five students allowing for great depth of conversation and close faculty-student interaction.

Digital Humanities Lab

Digital Humanities Lab

The digital humanities lab is a 1-credit course designed to help students discover digital tools and techniques that they can apply to any discipline they are exploring at the university. Students in the humanities have devised projects for SURF, forensic science students have used interactive mapping and timeline tools to present their research, and marine biology students have created podcasts to educate the general public. Guided by an interdisciplinary team of faculty, students in the lab learn about the projects faculty have mentored in the past and gather via zoom for weekly workshops to experiment and brainstorm possibilities.
