Shared History

“To me, history ought to be a source of pleasure. It isn’t just part of our civic responsibility. To me, it’s an enlargement of the experience of being alive, just the way literature or art or music is.”

― David McCullough

Shared History is an initiative of the History Department at the University of Nevada Reno. It combines public, oral, and digital history to investigate topics that are generated from both scholarly research projects and community initiatives. We seek to help students of history become marketable in our world of technology.  We also strive to present historical research in alternative formats; we do this by combining the rigor of traditional scholarship and the creativity of innovative design and presentation.
