A digital exhibit created by three students in Professor Meckel's seminar (AMST1904M) on the urban public health movement. Students chose to focus on the public health campaign to improve the health of school children, particularly through improving nutrition
The John Hay Library at Brown University holds a fascinating Japanese scroll that beautifully illustrates Commodore Matthew Perry's landing in Japan, the first official contact between Americans and Japanese. This web site grows out of the work of students in Professor Susan Smulyan's classes and library staff who examined the scroll and the lithographs made by members of the Perry expedition. We hope to soon post writings by students at the University of Tokyo talking about the same images.
Growing out of Professor Paul Buhle's Oral History seminar in which students interviewed Rhode Island's counterculture artists and leaders, this interactive site contains images, audio recordings, videos, and personal stories from those who shaped Rhode Island's culture throughout the 20th century. The George Street Journal has written about the project in an October 2004 article.
This website continues the relationship between Brown University and Tougaloo College, a relationship that began as part of the Mississippi Freedom Movement. Freedom Now! contains documents from Tougaloo and Brown's Archives, gathered by students from both campuses and faculty, including Professors Susan Smulyan and James Campbell from Brown, and Professor Ernest Limbo from Tougaloo. The documents on the site fall into two related categories: the Mississippi Freedom Movement, in which Tougaloo played a pivotal role, and the Brown-Tougaloo Cooperative Exchange, which grew out of that activism and continues today.
This website exhibits 12 student projects from Professor Susan Smulyan's "Digital Scholarship" class, which was taught in the spring of 2010 at Brown University (the course syllabus is available on this website).
