Steam Punk History: Low-Tech Storytelling in the Digital Age
Uncovering history is one thing; presenting it effectively is another. Even in the digital age, there are “low tech” methods that can be used to aid greater public understanding of important people, places, and events.
The Shoeleather History Project uses “clothesline” presentations, ViewMaster, trading cards, participatory walking tours, comics and other forms to teach “history from below.” This session will include examples of all of the above, using stories of abolitionists, suffragists, civil rights activists and union organizers.
