MiSU history students give Digital Minot presentations
Four Digital Minot Project student interns presented research on MiSU Summer Theatre, the Heritage Singers and pioneer female teachers on Sept. 20. The project provides an opportunity for student interns to investigate local history topics, and then use that research to give public presentations and create online exhibits which remain available for public viewing and response. The Digital Minot Project was created by Bethany Andreasen, history professor, and is sponsored by the Department of History at MiSU. The Digital Minot website can be found at http://digitalminot.minotstateu.edu/omeka .
