Digging into Local Archives Approaches and Methods for Planning Research

This is the third segment of our Community-Engaged Humanities Workshop Series.




An introduction to the organizing principles behind archives; how they are made available digitally, and effective methods as well as limitations of online discovery and interrogation.

These workshops are focused on supporting graduate student development in community-engaged humanities research. Participation is open to faculty, graduate students and community partners and students enrolled in IH 291: Seminars in the Humanities. Participation in the workshop series is part of professional development and a qualification to apply for a summer Luce fellowship.


This workshop series was made possible by the generous support of the Henry Luce Foundation.
