Ancient Latin American objects in the archive: selections from the George and Louise Patten collection of Salem Hyde cultural artifacts at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga
Rating
0.0 stars

Early in the Spring 2020 semester, University of Tennessee at Chattanooga students in my Ancient to Modern Latin American Visual Culture Art History course embarked upon an intensive first-hand visual analysis and research project that involved working directly with original artifacts from Ancient Latin America housed within the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga Library’s Special Collections. This unique opportunity and the publication of their findings were made possible thanks to the generous support and assistance of Special Collections Director Carolyn Runyon and her dedicated staff.

By examining the wide array of Pre-Columbian objects in the George and Louise Patten Salem Hyde Papers and Cultural Artifacts Collection, these upper division students formed small research groups dedicated to specific artifact types, such as human figurines, animal figurines, tools and lithics, vessels, anthropomorphic ceramics, replicas, and sherds. They carefully recorded their original observations of their selected objects of study in written field notes, photographs, and drawings. Later, they compared their initial observations with preliminary collection data developed independently by Archaeology students of Dr. Andrew Workinger, leading to further questions and insights surrounding these extraordinary pieces predominantly from pre-contact indigenous cultures of the Central and Intermediate regions of Latin America that today comprise Costa Rica, Ecuador, Panama and Colombia. Building upon their analysis, the Art History student research groups then re-examined their selected artifacts through analytical frameworks focused on Gender and the Body, Color, Pattern and Materiality, Spirituality and the Object, Form and Function, and Identity and Representation. In presenting their findings to their peers, students received feedback that allowed them to refine their analysis and develop the original individual and group catalog essays that comprise this exhibition publication. Their research sheds further light on the extraordinary value and diversity of the ancient artifacts of Latin America that uniquely form part of UTC’s Special Collections, as well as the innovative power of interdisciplinary research and collaboration.

Rating

Instructional materials on local history topics developed by students at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga for use in secondary education classrooms.

This is a one-day 60-minute lesson plan that covers the impact of integration at a local level by focusing on the decision and responses to desegregate the University of Chattanooga. The purpose of this lesson is to expand students’ knowledge of Chattanooga’s history through analysis of primary sources. Students will identify major milestones of post-secondary institutional desegregation and describe the impact it had on Chattanooga and its university community in the 100 years following the ratification of the Emancipation Proclamation.

Ninth grade students will work together to examine the primary source excerpts in order to understand desegregation of the University of Chattanooga as a process. This understanding will allow students to more fully grasp the necessity of action to attain implementation. Students will develop an understanding of how cooperation on varied levels and involvement from individuals
and groups with diverse interests result in the attainment of a desired goal. Additionally, having access to primary sources will help students learn to deconstruct different arguments in favor of and opposed to integration. This primary source analysis will also illustrate how multi-faceted a source can be. Students will learn how to mine information, while also appreciating that primary sources can be ambiguous.
