Public History student creates informative video

Tuesday, January 21, 2014

Undergraduate History student, Sahil Saini, created an amazing video, How Computing Shaped UW, which examines the origins of computing at the University of Waterloo. 

As a course component to HIST 302 Public History, taught by Professor Susan Roy, students created their own public history projects. Public history examines history as it is understood, experienced, represented and debated in the public sphere; it is an exciting field of historical exploration that offers students critical engagement with the production and politics of local and national narratives about the past. 

An exhibit of all student projects for this course is currently being organized in collaboration with the library. Stay tuned for more details. 

Great work, Sahil!
