Collaborative Inquiry in the Digital Archive

This online collaborative research seminar, the second in a series, was led by Andrea Peto, recipient of the USC Shoah Foundations' Teaching Fellowship, and Darcy Buerkle, Smith College focused on issues of how Memory of the Holocaust is inscribed, framed, mediated and performed. The syllabus was co-designed with Helga Dorner, CEU Center for Teaching and Learning, to take advantage of online technologies in student inquiry. In particular, students explored the use of digital archives such as the USC Shoah Foundation's Visual History Archive and created video projects in which they conducted historical analyses in new media narrative forms.
