AS.389.410 Sharing Knowledge: Participatory Archives, Collaborative Storytelling, and Social Justice
How can we mobilize the humanities to inspire social justice activism? This course introduces students to collaborative methods that encourage democratic participation among broad public audiences. We investigate indigenous research methods; collaborative oral history and ethnography; interactive theater; and community archives. Throughout the semester, students benefit from hands-on workshops, course sessions co-taught by community partners, guest lectures, and public talks. Final projects draw on the university’s archival, museum, and library collections.
