Two UVa-Wise Intro to Public History students selected by Americorps

UVa-Wise News - Fri, 04/08/2016 - 3:19pm

Seniors Connie Little and Forrest Duncan, both students in Introduction to Public History, were quickly snapped up by Americorps to work this summer at two state parks in the region.

Little and Duncan will be part of the Americorps Interpretative Trail Project. Little will work at the Southwest Virginia Museum in Big Stone Gap and Duncan is headed to the Breaks Interstate Park. Professor Jen Murray explained that the course is designed to show students the various career options that are open to history majors.

“They are doing an internship for credit,” Murray explained. “I’ll be supervising them over the summer. The Americorps position is the added bonus.”

Murray said Americorps and Virginia work together to select students to participate in the state park positions. Duncan and Little nabbed positions that more than 500 students applied for in the Commonwealth.

“It is a feather in the UVa-Wise cap,” Murray said.

Duncan, who is majoring in history and theater, was hired within 24 hours of submitting his application. Little, who is majoring in history and English, was quickly hired as well. The students will work 675 hours each between April and August. They will receive nearly $4,000 for living expenses and will receive about $2,200 after their work ends to pay for education costs.

“It’s an opportunity to start my career in history,” Duncan, a Virginia Beach, Virginia native said. “I’m planning to go to graduate school in a year, so it’s good to know I can get a job in something other than retail. Now I get to work with the public.”

Little, from McClure, Virginia, is also looking forward to working at the Southwest Virginia Museum.

“I’m excited to be able to do history instead of just writing about it,” Little said. “I’m also excited to be outside the classroom. It’s a different playing field. I’d love to work at the Smithsonian one day so I’m excited to get to work at the Southwest Virginia Museum.”

Both Duncan and Little agree that the Introduction to Public History course paved the way for their Americorps opportunities. They also agree that a liberal arts education has given them chances to pursue a variety of career choices.

“It has allowed us to get a job before we graduate,” Little said. “As humanities majors, we always hear people ask us what we are going to do with our degrees. Teaching is not the only option for us. Professor Murray has taught us how to do history.”

Duncan said the course has forced them to examine controversial topics in history, which has proven enlightening.

“We’ve actually done field work,” he said. “We have been working in archives in the library here. All the classes I’ve taken here have taught me to be a better writer.”

Both agree that liberal arts have taught them now to find answers, which will help them in any career choice the future may bring.

Little and Duncan are attending a training session for Americorp this weekend at Hungry Mother State Park in Marion, Virginia. They are taking various sessions, including how to use social media to promote the state parks. History Professor Tom Costa, who walked into the room as they were discussing the training program, pulled out his wallet and provided the students with some gas money for travel.

The surprised students said Costa’s action just solidifies the caring atmosphere at UVa-Wise.

Murray hopes to offer Introduction to Public History in the spring each year. She and the department are exploring the possibility of creating a public history minor in the future.

Cuba ‘Politics and Passion’ lecture set for April 21 at UVa-Wise

UVa-Wise News - Wed, 04/06/2016 - 1:41pm

Garry Leech, an instructor of political science at Cape Breton University in Canada, will lecture at UVa-Wise on Thursday, April 21, on “Politics and Passion: Cuba in the 21st Century.”

The event, which is free and open to the public, is set for 7 p.m. in the Chapel of All Faiths. His talk will include topics such as opportunities the recent thaw in US-Cuban relations may present to Americans. He will offer insights on Cuba’s organic agriculture, vibrant cooperative movement and social programs including education and healthcare.

Leech is also a freelance journalist. He has traveled extensively and reported from Colombia and Venezuela. His work as a freelancer has allowed him to go to places where regular media journalists don’t go. Most recently, he and his family lived and worked from a neighborhood in Havana, Cuba last summer to experience Cuban culture first hand. He has written extensively on his findings and experiences.
