Course detail: OSH149 - Looking Back, Moving Forward: Perspectives from a Congressional Archive
What stories do congressional archives tell, where are they found, and how can they be used? What role do historical records play in democracy and civic engagement? We'll discuss these questions and use the Dole Archives and intergenerational conversation to examine 20th-century history, politics, policy and culture. Osher participants will work with first-semester freshmen students in the KU Honors Program on a project that may be featured as an exhibit at the Dole Institute. This is a great opportunity to interact with the newest generation of voting-age citizens.
