Where are the Founding Fathers?: Applied History and Academe


Author(s):
Abstract:
Applied history refers to a form of communicating history through performance, preservation, and exhibit to deliver history to a larger, public audience. Dr. Nathans took part in several of these applied history projects and shares his thoughts and revelations about communicating history through popular media. He focuses on three projects; a photographic essay on Durham's history displayed in the Durham Arts Council (1975), preservation at the Stagville Preservation Center (1977), and finally collecting documents for a project called the North Carolina source book (1979).
