Experiential Learning and Community-informed Engagement With Archives

Mar 14 • 12:00 pm - 1:15 pm

Exploring the primary sources found in archives can help students come to deeply understand factors that have shaped a community into what it is today. The Northeastern University Archives and Special Collections (NUASC) hold historical records of Boston’s neighborhoods, social justice movements, and built environments through community-based collections. By engaging with these materials through inquiry, students can build their ethical archival research skills as well as their knowledge of the rich history of Boston area communities. In this workshop, you will learn how NUASC can support authentic experiential learning through research with a community-informed mindset and approach.

This session is only open to Northeastern University students, staff and educators. Please use your Northeastern email when registering.
