Dr. Andrew Feight, Assistant Professor of American and Digital History at Shawnee State University, attended the Annual Meeting of the National Council on Public History (NCPH) in Nashville, Tennessee.
The mission of NCPH is to inspire “public engagement with the past” by helping build “community among historians, expanding professional skills and tools, fostering critical reflection on historical practice and publicly advocating for history and historians.”
As part of the recent conference, The NCPH hosted the Humanities and Technology Camp (THATcamp), a workshop on digital history projects. Professor Feight was able to share his students’ research on local history, specifically the new content for the Scioto Historical app and website project that is being developed by SSU’s Digital History Lab.
“Participation in the conference sessions allowed me to share the exciting work of my undergraduate history students. We are currently developing stories and a new walking tour of Pioneer Portsmouth, which covers the founding of Portsmouth and celebrates the city’s bicentennial,” said Professor Feight.
