15 Minute History on new public history site about the University of Texas Tower Shooting
We just published a bit of a hybrid episode at 15 Minute History, a roundtable with a group of undergraduate and graduate students who developed material for a new public history website about the University of Texas tower shooting that took place on August 1, 1966. In addition to the historical background of the shooting and response, there's also a bit of "how we did it" from the students about undertaking research on a topic that has been somewhat taboo in Austin and on the University of Texas campus.
This episode might be of interest to students (and faculty) interested in pursuing public history projects on their own.
The podcast audio, transcript, and link to the student developed site can be found at:
