Teaching Public History with the 1918 Pandemic in Nanaimo

March 25, 2021 @ 7:00 pm 8:00 pm

As a history professor at Vancouver Island University, Katharine Rollwagen used the 1918 pandemic to help her students understand a significant world event in a local context. The students then created an exhibit for the Nanaimo Museum in order to share their knowledge and new skills with the wider community. The presentation will focus on the process of developing the historians of tomorrow.

7PM virtually via Zoom. Free for members. Access code will be provided prior to meeting.
