In this session, archivists and faculty who are working together to enrich campus experiences and forward institutional goals will discuss a variety of classroom applications for primary source collections. Speakers will share examples of immersive media technology applied to historical records to engage the concept of "serious play" in student exhibitions that reflect upon social good and political engagement. The session will also provide a view of ongoing collaborations between archivists and faculty to map the history of security and public safety; how students interrogate whose stories are being told and what role archives play in institutional accountability; and an exploration of new and evolving opportunities to engage a wide variety of stakeholders with archival collections in service of broad institutional goals.
