Archives Investigations: Examining Race and Ethnicity

This fall we are launching an exciting new iteration of our Archives Investigations seminar, HON 323A: Archives Investigations: Examining Race and Ethnicity. SCUA is partnering with the Thomas L. Hill ISCORE: Iowa State Conference on Race and Ethnicity and supporting research on race and ethnicity in archives and digital collections. In groups, students will polish their presentation skills and present their research from this fall course at a poster session or presentation at ISCORE 2023.

Images below are ISCORE programs from various years and photographs of the first Archives Investigations Honors seminar SCUA taught in fall of 2019.

ISCORE occurs in the spring, usually early March, and the first conference was held over 20 years ago on March 3, 2000. ISCORE is modeled after the National Conference on Race and Ethnicity (NCORE) and was founded by Dr. Thomas L. Hill (from ISCORE Project History).

To take this course you must be enrolled in the Honors Program. Visit this page for more information on eligibility and the many benefits of being part of the Iowa State University Honors Program, such as 24/7 access to the Jischke Honors Building and the ability to check out library books for the whole academic year!
