Class Projects

Class Projects

Our students do some pretty cool projects as part of their classes.


Allen County High School Project

Dr. Evan's Folklore and Education class worked with Allen County High School Advanced Placement teachers and students to document folklife and oral history in Allen County.

Allen County Log House Survey Update

Dr. Williams's Vernacular Architecture class revisited and updated surveys of Allen County log structures originally completed by WKU student teams in the 1970s and 1980s.

Liberian Donation

Dr. Williams's 2012 Museum Procedures and Preservation Techniques class researched artifacts and developed an exhibit. In 2014, the Coppelia Hays Liberian Collection catalogue was moved online -- view the collection here!

The Gardner House

An early 19th century house that the department, and especially students, are working to restore, research, and document.  This gets double listing with students projects because students also work on it during their historical preservation classes.

Allen County Folklife and Oral History Project

In 2011, the Folk Studies and Anthropology Department received a grant to do a two year study of neighboring Allen County.  

Oral History Radio Programming

Dr. Williams's Cultural Conservation class developed historic folklife public radio programming from archival oral history pieces -- listen to them via our new WKU Folk Studies Sound page on SoundCloud!

Food Art

Just to have fun, the Foodway class has a food art contest.
