Workshop: Preserving Local History

Local history cannot survive without being nurtured and protected. Explore hands on history efforts at Wilson College as well as the important processes for creating or managing an archive. You'll learn about the critical decision-making that goes into bringing order out of chaos with paper-based historical documents. Then move to place-based engagement efforts with a case study of preservation studies at Wilson College. Discover how to spark joy in reseach and preservation!
