UA Little Rock Center for Arkansas History and Culture to host History Alive: Virtually! Session on Feb. 1

The next Evenings with History lecture series of “History Alive: Virtually!” session will begin Tuesday, Feb. 1, at 7: 30 p.m via Zoom.

“History Alive: Virtually!,” is a digital humanities project created for Arkansas educators and students focused on using archival documents in the social studies classrooms. Free registration for this event is linked here. A Zoom link will be provided upon registration.

The Center for Arkansas History and Culture will have four presenters: Deborah Baldwin, Cody Besett, Marta Cieslak, and Elise Tanner. The session will talk about how the project came to be amidst the pandemic, in response to recent issues Arkansas teachers and kids are facing; how to use the resources we acquired and generated in the classroom; and how anyone interested in Arkansas history ties to American and international history can benefit from “History Alive: Virtually!”
