In the Spring 2018 semester, I will be teaching my cemeteries course again at VCU: HIST 201 The Art of Historical Detection – Richmond Cemeteries. It will enroll 125 students, mostly non-history majors. That means a few field trips and hopefully lots of new podcasts to post.
Doug Winiarski at U.R. will also be offering his “City of the Dead” course on Richmond cemeteries in the Spring, and other U.R./VCU faculty members are drawing upon East End Cemetery for their courses, too. We will all be convening our students (and hopefully community members) in an end-of the-year hurrah on April 27.
