Judith DeGroat. Associate Professor of History history is teaching a Sophomore Seminar titled, "Local Histories in the Digital Age."

From the course description:  "The village of Canton was incorporated in 1845; St. Lawrence University opened in 1856. What sources do historians use to write local histories in the North Country?  In this seminar, we will explore the St. Lawrence Country Historical Society, the Canton Village Archives, and Traditional Arts of Upstate New York (TAUNY), and SLU’s Special Collections. Learn about the community you live in and explore its history while exploring digital tools to gather and share your findings."
