AMST 272 - Facing Georgetown's History
The American Studies Program will host a new course in Spring 2017 - AMST 272: Facing Georgetown’s History.  This course will revive the Program’s longstanding commitment to exploring and commemorating Georgetown’s history of slavery. Students in this course will examine Georgetown’s roots in the Maryland Jesuits' slave economy and its legacies; contribute to the Georgetown Slavery Archive by identifying and interpreting archival materials; and develop memory and reconciliation projects related to Georgetown’s ongoing efforts to reflect on our own school’s history.
