An Experiential, Place-Based Curriculum for Historic Preservation and Humanities-Centered Land Use

A two-year interdisciplinary curricular project to implement an experiential place-based curriculum in the applied humanities, including historic preservation and human-centered land use.

We propose a two-semester, experiential undergraduate curriculum designed to introduce students to a wide range of careers in applied Humanities. Using Vanderbilt University’s historic Vaughn Home (1875) as a “lab,” students will gain hands-on experience with archival and archeological research, historic reservation, museum curation, human-centered land use and design, digital humanities, and public affairs. This proposal is submitted jointly by faculty in Anthropology, Engineering, Managerial Studies, English, and History in full partnership with administrative staff from the Division of Administration, the Division of Communications, University Archives/Special Collections, the Center for Digital Humanities, and the Center for Teaching at Vanderbilt University.
