In the capstone seminar for the Archives Concentration, ARX 340 Taking the Archives Public, students explored contemporary issues at the intersection of archives and public history and heritage work by creating online, digital exhibits. Public history projects range in topics from Dyke TV, Women’s Sports, Girl’s Summer Camps, the Latin American Student Organization at Smith College, 19th century aprons, and letters by Sylvia Plath.
