This platform showcases the doings of the Public & Digital History Concentration at Bridgewater College. Housed in the Department of History & Political Science, it emerged based on an initiative by Dr. Versen, a historian of American history. Dr. Kalb, historian of Modern European history, has joined more recently. Broadly speaking, public and digital history aim to utilize traditional resources and new media to reach audiences beyond the classroom. Our concentration does so by providing undergraduate students with various hands-on learning experiences within and outside the classroom – as apparent in the examples below.
For questions, please feel free to contact Dr. Versen, cversen [at] bridgewater.edu, or Dr. Kalb, mkalb [at] bridgewater.edu. Thank you.
