The Inaugural Fargo History Project: Opening and Reception

7 p.m. Friday, Dec. 7, 2012 at the Plains Art Museum

Join us for the opening of the inaugural Fargo History Project at the Plains Art Museum. NDSU student scholars will share highlights of their recent work to research and document Fargo from 1871-1897. The event is free and open to the public.

The Fargo History Project is a public history initiative sponsored by Angela Smith, Assistant Professor of History at NDSU. She designed the project and the associated website as a vehicle for student research in the Fall 2012 Digital History Class. The project’s aim is toward community engagement about local history. Future classes will build on this initial effort.

“So often student work is produced and the only audience is the course instructor.,” Smith said. “The students in this class focused on presenting their historical research to a public audience and connecting the dots between their individual topics in their web presentation.”

Please come and meet the students and faculty for refreshments and discussion at 7 p.m. Friday, Dec. 7, at the Plains Art Museum.
