Historians/Artifacts/Learners: Working Papers.
Nichols, Susan K., Ed.
This publication, an outcome of a 2-day colloquium in 1981, contains information about using artifacts (material culture evidence) as a primary source for teaching history at the graduate or advanced student seminar level. A purpose of the colloquium was to gather and disseminate this information for the Historians/Artifacts/Learners (HAL) project. Included is a lead article; six papers presented at the colloquium; an analysis of the proceedings; remarks, discussion, and recommendations made at the colloquium; and a selected list of course syllabi, books, and articles. The lead article describes five individuals who recognized the importance of using artifacts in the teaching of history. The six papers discuss using artifacts to teach history in the disciplines of cultural anthropology and folklore studies, social history, art history, cultural geography, history of technology, and historical archaeology. The remarks and discussion article summarizes and interprets the papers presented at the colloquium. Among the recommendations of the HAL staff are that a single resource, most likely a publication, be compiled and that curriculum materials be developed for using artifacts in teaching history. The bibliography presents a core listing of college-level syllabi as well as available books, articles, and pamphlets on this topic. (NE)
