Project ideas

Project ideas are meant to help inspire student thinking about their own project. Students are in the driver seat of their research and are free to use any or none of the ideas shared by their mentors.

Research Writing:

Is there a history topic you'd like to explore? You could choose a topic related to an aspect of science, medicine, or public health that interests you. We will devote some time to refining the topic, selecting a scope that is appropriate for the the length of time we will be together. From there we will analyze some relevant texts (both secondary and primary) to generate your opinions on the history. When you feel ready, we will then work together to write about it!

Historical Exhibition:

Do you love visiting museums? Have you ever wondered what it would be like to create an exhibit about a topic of your choice? We can work together to create one! In a project like this, we would first select a period or event in history to talk about. I would then guide you toward relevant primary and secondary resources which we can talk through and analyze together. From there, we will work on curating those pieces you found to be most relevant into an exhibit that you could, if you wanted to, display for family or friends to see!

Public Exhibit:

Is there a current healthcare-related topic you'd love to learn more about and share on a public platform? Together we could explore topics such as racial disparity within the diabetic community, and create a sketch for a platform by which you can generate a public conversation about these issues. This would entail selecting a topic of interest, exploring various primary and secondary sources together, and then ultimately discussing effective media strategies to maximize impact in reaching interested (or uninterested) audiences. Part of the fun and value of history is being able to share it with those around you!
