Based on recently published research, it is clear that UNH’s land grant status is directly tied to the seizure of Native American land. This history presents an opportunity for further archival research, and can serve as a jumping off point for broader investigations of histories of Indigenous life, colonization, UNH, and the state of New Hampshire more generally.  In this research seminar, students will embark on independent research projects which will investigate an aspect of the history of Indigenous and/or Black peoples in New Hampshire. The ultimate goal of the project is the launch of a free downloadable smartphone app that will utilize augmented reality technology to illuminate aspects of New Hampshire’s Indigenous history, and the history of slavery, that have been largely hidden for generations.
