A long-term classroom assignment.
Through texts by and about English Catholic women composed between 1660 and 1800, students in this course will learn about the challenges and opportunities facing these women and the ways—textual and practical—in which they faced them. Students will explore how text, whether private or public, provided seventeenth- and eighteenth-century English Catholic women with a means for negotiating the opportunities and limitations they faced as women, as Catholics, and as Catholic women.
The site uses the Vertex theme by Elegant Themes, which allows each student to produce a project that goes beyond the typical term paper. The “Builder” allows complex page layouts like you would see in a textbook, with quotations, rotating images, embedded video and audio, bibiliographies and more.
Exhibits can also have custom banners that highlight the topic.
