One of the benefits to working at the AGRC is having a working knowledge of all of our collections. This insider knowledge comes in handy when class projects align with materials at the center. For the past few months, I have been researching and developing a website for my Seminar in State and Local History course using primary sources from the June Anderson Women’s Center collection and the Middle Tennessee Oral History Project.
The website compares the story of female students from the 1960s-1980s at MTSU to the national narrative of women in college. Materials from the JAWC collections included photographs, letters, grant proposals, testimonies, and newspaper articles. Check it out!
