NEH Enduring Questions Course on the Relationship between Past and Present

The development and teaching of a new undergraduate course on the relationship between past and present.

This project supports the development of a course on the enduring question, "What is the relationship between past and present?" The course considers human perceptions and constructions of the past in five different but related formulations presented as "chapters": personal pasts, prophetic pasts, historical pasts, usable pasts, and unfathomable pasts. Rather than a meditation on history, time, or memory, this interdisciplinary course, drawing on works from history, literature, philosophy, and the physical sciences, will explore the complex relationship between the present and these notional pasts. The course will be designed for delivery in the Learning Communities of Kennesaw State University's renowned First-Year Experience, which emphasize academic rigor and interdisciplinarity. The project will also support the director's ongoing planned research into the methodological parallels between historians and practitioners of the physical sciences whose work is concerned with the past.
