People's History of Middlebury

A People's History of Middlebury College
A people’s history is a history centered on marginalized voices and on periods of struggle. In this course we will first define the meaning of the term “marginalization.” We will investigate questions such as: How have marginalized Middlebury students/faculty/staff viewed their experiences here? What has resistance looked like at Middlebury? What is the relationship between education and action on our campus? We will draw from primary and secondary historical sources including Stameshkin’s history of Middlebury College, oral histories from current and past members of the Middlebury community, and resources in the College Archives. As an interdisciplinary Education Studies course, we will use supplementary texts and multimedia resources on people’s histories, student/worker movements, the development of higher education since the early 19th century, and educational and social theory.
