The Center for Applied History showcases the powerful work that our students and faculty have created using the methods found in public and digital histories. By focusing on socially engaged history that creates history collaboratively with the Bay Area community, we offer students something that they can’t find in other History Departments in the region. Now more than ever we need to communicate and market the importance of history to the public, and our students are doing just that! Podcasts about the ancient world, exhibits about Stalingrad, and historical blogging about the presidential election are just some of the projects that students have done in our program. The Center for Applied History embeds history majors into Bay Area communities and helps them experiment with different modes to tell stories and interpret the past.
