  • Timeline Photos
    Dr. Helen Regis and the Center's director, Jennifer Cramer, are co-teaching "Doing Oral History" Anth 4909 this Spring 2015. The class explores theory and methods of oral history and life history research, with special emphasis on its importance for the study of social movements, cultural and social history, race/racism, folklore, and feminist theory and ethnography. Doing Oral History is open to advanced undergraduates as well as graduate students who wish to learn the theory and practice of oral history. This class is a research-based service-learning class offered in partnership with the Jazz & Heritage Foundation.
  • #TBT Our campus, c. 1939. How many buildings can you name? Hint: Many of these structures were named for legendary faculty members and administrators whose work is featured on our current agricultural history exhibition, "Cooperative Extension at LSU: Commemorating the Centennial of the Smith-Lever Act of 1914." Many of the same people are featured in our companion exhibit, "The Greater University," documenting LSU's move to its current location. .


  • It's History Day! The History Graduate Student Association, Special Collections, and others have put together a fun and informative day planned, including an opportunity late in the afternoon to look at some rare materials in our McIlhenny Room! Stop by anytime from 12-4 today!

    There will be be lunch and opportunities to talk informally with undergrads who are majoring or minoring in history, social studies ed. majors, and anyone interested in history. There will also be a schedule of short presentations from Study Abroad, Hill, the Law School, etc. Please consider stopping by, even if only for part of the event. Also, if you're teaching a class or if you are a TA or SI, try to get the word out to your students.
