This is the capstone research seminar for history majors. The primary objective is to produce an original, carefully researched, and well written ~25-30 page research paper. Peer review will be a vital part of this course. The course is loosely focused on Slavery, Charleston, and the College, but paper topics may only be tangentially related to that theme. For example the memory or the legacy of slavery are acceptable topics. Or you could do something on African Americans and their role on campus during Reconstruction.
Through scholarly research and public programming, the Center for the Study of Slavery (CSSC) examines the impact of slavery and race-related issues in the City of Charleston, including the surrounding region, and at the College of Charleston from the late 18th century through the civil rights era and the continued impact and legacy of slavery in the present.
