Interdisciplinary Engagement with Photographic Collections | Workshop 6 of 6 (Virtual)

When: April 22, 2021 4:00pm to 5:15pm

Interested in building archival research into new or existing curriculum? In this presentation, featuring Meg Jackson Fox, associate curator of academic and public programs, and Emily Una Weirich, associate archivist for digital initiatives, we will discuss how photographic collections at the Center for Creative Photography can help build excitement in the research process for undergraduates from any discipline. Whether single experiences at CCP or multiple engagements throughout a semester, whether large or small classes, CCP's staff of archivists and educators can collaborate with you to enhance students' skills in critical thinking, the research process, use of digital tool, and visual analysis – all while enjoying the act of discovery and empowering inquiry through primary research opportunities here on our campus. We look forward to working with you soon!

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.
