Abstract

When two bulls fight the grasses become the victims.
Tanzanian Proverb

How do you spark an interest among students in historical research? History is messy, records are sporadic, there is no formula to follow, but there are techniques to learn. How do you make history real?

In Fall 2016, Keitha Lucas Hamann offered a graduate seminar entitled “Making History” to teach doctoral students the fundamentals of historical research. We explored the 1974 Federal Civil Rights lawsuit between the Minnesota Youth Symphonies and the Minnesota Music Educators Association by creating a historical research collaborative. Using court documents available in the University of Minnesota Archives and the National Archives and Records Administration in Chicago, we learned how to gather and evaluate historical evidence, analyze and report the findings, and connect these findings with contemporary music education.The purpose of our presentation is to share the results from this exploration and to share student perspectives from this method of exploring historical research.
What are the most important lessons learned from this class?
How did the format help or hinder your development as a scholar?
What questions do you still have about historical research?
We will also open this section up for questions from the audience.
