Abstract: This anthology is the product of a collaborative process involving a professor (Hepzibah Roskelly), a university archivist (Erin Lawrimore), graduate student instructors (Scott Gibson, Tammy Lancaster, Emily Hall, Lavina Ensor, Kt Leuschen, and Summar Sparks), and undergraduates. With a desire to engage undergraduates with the University of North Carolina’s rich history, in the fall of 2011 the teachers began meeting with a university archivist, Erin Lawrimore, to design assignments incorporating archival research. The assignments varied, but each one was created to empower undergraduates to more fully engage with primary sources and with their local communities. In the Spring of 2012 and the Fall of 2013, the assignments were used in composition and literature classrooms. As undergraduate students discovered their own abilities to interpret history, many became interested in sharing their work with the broader UNCG community. This electronic book is the result of these students’ efforts researching, drafting, revising, revising, and revising.
