Department Section Description: 

Students will learn basic concepts and techniques of archival research, working directly with rare materials held by the Knight Library Special Collections and University archives (such as manuscripts, letters, document records, university records and reports). Students will have access to historical records (in physical and digital forms) and may add to the collection holdings through primary research in other places. They will define for themselves a particular research project involving the history (1878 to the present) of the English Department. Winter and Spring internships will continue this research and include writing their research findings for publication.
