Check out this video from Siena’s Saints Go Marching segment for Oct 31-Nov 4 2022. From 0:03-1:15, the video showcases my ENGL 345 (American Literature 1500-1820) class’ partnership with the Brookside Museum in Ballston Spa, NY. The partnership is part of the English Department’s initiative as Siena’s first “Community Engaged Department”!
For our community engaged project, the class is transcribing approximately 40 pages of the ledger and then researching content for an online exhibit to be hosted by the Brookside museum. I’m grateful to Sarah Toledano in the Center for Academic Community Engagement at Siena, and to Anne Clothier, the Education Director at Brookside.
