The purpose of this blog will be to chronicle the research process of the students of History 3801 as we explore the abolitionist movement centred in Southwestern Ontario and the Northern United States, focusing on the letters of abolitonist Hiram Wilson and the establishment of the Wilberforce settlement.
This project is association with the Promised Land Project (PLP), and aims to be congruent with the overall research aims of the PLP.
Last year’s class also studied the letters of Hiram Wilson and their blog can be found here.
What we hope to accomplish through this blog:
-a central place to display the work of various groups within the Historian’s Craft Class and how they present their research through various multimedia and creative presentations
-to examine the research of the students and the unseen historiographical process
-to engage the public with our research via the platform of Tumblr through tagging posts, reblogging posts that are relevant to our study
The culmination of the blog will be fufilled in the formal presentation at Huron University College (date TBA).
For contact proposes, we can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you for joining us on our journey!
