This exhibit is the culmination of a pilot collaboration between the English Department and the Library's Archives & Special Collections department at Santa Clara University. During the 2016 fall quarter, students in Dr. Amy Lueck's English 103: Topics in Writing and Rhetoric course applied principles of exhibit curation to the sphere of digital humanities in order to create researched arguments. Their physical and digital exhibits pursue topical and poignant discussions that explore what it is that makes this university Santa Clara University. This course and the students' scholarly products serve as scalable models of digital humanities projects that use the University's historical material to stimulate critical thinking skills and promote a better understanding of how it has transformed into the community it is today.
