Pre-twentieth-century history is dominated by the study of words on paper. Yet much of this period is also richly documented by visual images. Illustrations found in books, periodicals, prints and paintings can provide students with a tremendous store of empirical data and a profound emotional understanding of the past. This one-day conference will offer a rich and varied examination of the field of visual culture and explore practical applications for using images and maps with student populations at all levels.
Co-sponsored by the Center for Historic American Visual Culture (CHAVIC) at the American Antiquarian Society and the New England History Teachers Association. For a full schedule and registration information, please visit http://www.americanantiquarian.org/visualizingthepast.htm.
