Spring 2022 Opportunities
Slavery and Captivity in the Medieval World: Pedagogical Approaches
Professor Hannah Barker, History
This project, “Slavery and Captivity in the Medieval World: Pedagogical Approaches,” will involve assisting Dr. Barker in developing a publicly available website (www.medievalslavery.org) with resources for professors who want to teach a unit or an entire course on slavery in the medieval world, students completing research projects, and members of the public who want to learn more about this topic. It will include a collection of primary sources which have never before been translated into English and a selected bibliography for further reading.
Title IX 50th Anniversary Research Project
Professor Victoria Jackson, History
This project, “Title IX 50th Anniversary Research Project,” students will be working to collect historical materials and oral histories related to the Valley’s Title IX history leading into the 50th anniversary of Title IX on June 23, 2022. This project will likely be working in partnership with Sun Devil Athletics and the Cronkite School of Journalism to share stories collected in public venues.
Community Art, Community History
Professor Catherine O'Donnell, History
This project, “Community Art, Community History,” will offer students the opportunity to work with Herberger Art and Design Corps to research the history of a community group and participate in the development of a community arts project reflecting that history.
Berlin Wall Exhibition
Professor Volker Benkert, History
This project, “Berlin Wall Exhibition,” will involve helping design a small exhibition on the Berlin Wall on the fourth floor of Coor Hall. Thanks to the German Honorary Consul, the School of Historical, Philosophical and Religious Studies has recently acquired a large original piece of the Berlin Wall. We would now like to design an exhibition putting the historical artifact into context. Guided by Erin Craft and Volker Benkert, interested students will familiarize themselves with the history of the Berlin Wall, gather sources and images, as well as design the exhibit.
Henry H. Proctor and the Black Social Gospel Movement
Professor Moses Moore, Religious Studies
This project, “Henry H. Proctor and the Black Social Gospel Movement,” involves online archival research intended to facilitate the final stages of a manuscript focused on the life and social gospel ministry of Henry H. Proctor.
