Dr. Kelly Goldberg has been awarded the CIEL Beyond the Classroom grant. Her students will develop an interpretive exhibit focusing on an archaeological artifact collection associated with African American history on James Island, SC. Below is a summary provided by Dr. Goldberg about the project:
"[S]tudents [will] conduct research and analysis in public history and heritage interpretation of a historically significant site on James Island, SC. The goal of the project is to develop an interpretive exhibit focusing on an archaeological artifact collection associated with a multicomponent site that highlights significant African American history excavated on the Brown Family's property. In addition to highlighting the physical history of the landscape, the exhibit (and student research) will engage dialogue on the complexities of critical cultural heritage identity representation and management."
