Empathy in the Time of Polemics: Using Archives to Teach Historical Empathy

2019-08-08T18:35:25Z (GMT) by Julia Corrin
The development of historical empathy in students is a desired learning outcome in many history curriculums. Although historical empathy is written about frequently in educational literature, it is not addressed in archival journals. The integration of "historical empathy" into archival pedagogy is rich with opportunities. Three archivists discuss their successful collaborations with educators to develop archival projects that incorporate empathy development in a wide range of academic settings.

This presentation was given at the Society of American Archivists Annual Meeting in Austin, TX in August 2019.
