Lake Forest College received a four year Mellon grant to produce student/faculty research into Chicago's at-risk history and create digital projects to share the results of the research. The College partnered with the Chicago History Museum, who now host the project atdigitalchicagohistory.org. Students researched in cultural institutions throughout Chicago including the History Museum and the Newberry. Students and faculty also explored area churches, neighborhoods, archaeological sites, and theaters for their research. Our projects encompassed a wide range of disciplines, and required learning different research methods as well as quick learning and experimentation with new technologies. Special attention will be given to the student research experience; without the students, the project would not have been possible.
