Animating History

Student videos (2 minutes long) that contrast "facing east" and "facing west" perspectives of European contact with Native North Americans (1500s-1600s).

In Fall 2014, students completed this assignment based on reading and discussion of Julie Fisher and David Silverman, Ninigret: Sachem of the Niantics and Narragansetts: Diplomacy, War, and the Balance of Power in Seventeenth-Century New England and Indian Country (Cornell University Press, 2014).
