This workshop is part of the following series:

Teaching through Primary Sources & Archival Materials: Six Workshops
The Roots of Knowledge 2021 Series | March 18, 2021 - April 22, 2021

Curated by Matthew Mugmon, CUES Distinguished Fellow, this multi-panel workshop series addresses a significant pedagogical challenge in higher education: the lack of undergraduate opportunities to engage with primary sources. Each of the six workshops features a different aspect of using primary sources and archival materials in undergraduate teaching and research, and introduces some of the many archives available at the University. Faculty, researchers and students of all disciplines are encouraged to attend and explore strategies for using physical and digital archives in their work. Admission is free.
