This course provides students the opportunity to develop an in-depth understanding of field research in Appalachian Studies.

Students will also complete a series of exercises to build their multimedia skills. Students must then use best practices in field research to develop a final project. The expectation is that this final product will connect to thesis research, or become part of a professional presentation or published article. Topics will include oral histories, folklore, and community organizing.
