Shared History

Welcome to the Shared History Archive 

The Shared History Program 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 make students of history marketable in the age of technology and present historical research in alternative formats; we do this by combining the rigor of traditional scholarship and the creativity of innovative design and presentation.
