ENG 227 - Introduction to Archival Research


The objective of this hands-on, workshop style seminar is to familiarize students with the skills needed to conduct in-depth, independent research with a variety of archival resources.  Although this is an interdisciplinary class designed to enhance research opportunities for students across the University, the first half of the syllabus focuses primarily on book history and the development of print culture in Europe and the United States through 1900.  Subsequent independent projects may draw on areas outside of this focus and may be designed for individuals or for small groups.  Projects with applications outside of the classroom (such as finding aids, online teaching and learning resources, etc.) are strongly encouraged.  The course may be of particular interest to students in English; History; Communication and Culture; Women and Gender Studies; Comparative Literature; and Ancient Civilization as well as Art History and Music.  For English majors, the course can fulfill EITHER the C1 or C2 requirement upon approval of instructor. 

Anticipated Terms Offered: Every year
