Material Connects Past and Present

Educators will learn how objects, artifacts and documents can tell important stories about the past and present at Plymouth State University’s Heritage Studies Conference on Friday, October 22.

“Material Matters: Objects, Artifacts, Documents and the Stories They Tell That Connect Past and Present” will take place from 9 a.m. – 3 p.m. in Heritage Commons at Samuel Read Hall Residence Hall, on the PSU campus. Registration is from 8:30 – 9 a.m.

Presentations will cover areas such as New Hampshire’s Native Americans, combining forensic anthropology with historical research, methods of historical detective work, using objects as an interdisciplinary organizing tool, and integrating local material culture into classroom learning.

The conference is a part of PSU’s Exploring Heritage Series: Professional Development Opportunities for Educators, 2004-2005. Participants will see how ideas from the conference may be incorporated into curriculum enhancement, professional development plans and the New Hampshire Department of Education’s Social Studies framework. The conference will also provide possible graduate credit for Heritage Studies.
