Ruth Cowan and Matt Hersch
"Integrating Artifacts into Undergraduate Course Design"
All historians should be able to think with, analyze and historicize
the objects around us. Ruth Cowan and Matthew Hersch, two Penn
historians of technology, will lead us in a discussion of how to
integrate artifacts into undergraduate course design, both in the
classroom and for assignments. We will discuss the value and merits of
this pedagogical approach, as well as how to address difficulties,
should they arise.
