Explores how "collective memory" develops. Examines how memory is represented through public speeches, civic celebrations, monuments and memorials, and other forms of popular and political culture. Analyzes what is recalled, what is forgotten, and who decides. Asks why memory is made public. May be repeated once for credit when offered with a different topic. Credit will not be given for both HI 463 and HI 563.

The intent, given current resources, is to offer the dual-level course only in Maymester, and the graduate-level alone in Fall. The dual-level version (see the sample syllabus) has been taught multiple times in Maymester, with undergraduates using a 498 or 499 special topics enrollment. The proposed revision to add 463 will make an undergraduate public history course available to advanced undergraduates, for which there is demand among our majors.

mlnosbis 3/27/2018: This looks like a great course!
*Note to check with R&R that this should be available for Fall semester length in addition to Maymester.
* The main change is adding the undergraduate component. Looks like the rest is remaining the same.
1) Enrollment component type should be lecture to match what you listed as the main component type.
2) See Learning Outcomes Guidelines attached under Additional Documentation to strengthen learning outcomes. Then, "Objective" on the syllabus should be identified as "Learning Outcomes"
3) Syllabus notes:
-include instructor office and office hours
-include general NC State PRR disclaimer (#14). See Syllabus Checklist attached under Additional Documentation.

cohen (3/27/2018):
It looks like Melissa and I both want to take this course!
1. Given the additional assignment for graduate students, should there be an additional learning outcome?
2. On the syllabus, there are gaps in the grading scale. For example, what grade will I get if my average is 94 or 98 or...?
3. The graduate course may not be taken for credit only. Please make that clear on the syllabus.

ABGS Reviewer Comments 4/17/2018:
- HI 563 might be the coolest class I've ever seen. In fact, I want to recommend it for my students, but unfortunately it looks like there is a history pre-req.
- I don't understand the fee structure for the trip to DC, but I'm not sure if that needs to be in the syllabus or in CIM. If it is clear to others, that is fine. I just hadn't seen a class like this and thus don't know the protocol.
