Rediscovering history through community
The Muhlenberg Memories Project gives prominence to the landscape, time, and history that shaped Muhlenberg College.
We value the individual, the singular building, or illuminating episode that serves as a micro-history of broader historical currents affecting the culture as a whole.
Our pedagogical goal, drawn from theory and praxis, is to bring to light the many stories that await our discovery as we explore primary sources and create digital narratives.
Navigation of the Muhlenberg Memories Project may be experienced as “chapters” in College and Lehigh Valley history. Alternatively, the visitor can view discrete elements of the Project, including primary sources, pedagogical praxis, student-created digital stories, timelines, and more.
