This semester, HSS 202-01H: INTERROGATING UNIVERSITY HISTORY had the privilege of learning about the history of the University of North Carolina at Greensboro through the lenses of university archivists. With Professor Erin Lawrimore, students had the opportunity to explore primary sources from the university’s early days as State Normal School for women to the evolved University of North Carolina at Greensboro we know and love today. From class jackets to handwritten letters from previous chancellors, time was spent painstakingly analyzing material to understand the many narratives of the university’s origin and growth. From lengthy interviews to the words often left unsaid, students have been equipped to document their story: the impact of Covid-19 on UNCG’s campus. Through oral history interviews, students in this course have collected information on numerous student experiences impacted by the pandemic from Spring 2020 to Spring 2021.
