In addition to its larger exhibits, Exploring The Boston Teacher Union Collections also publishes blog posts: short snapshots of different stories within the BTU collections. Browse them for inspiration and an idea of the content within the union holdings!
During Spring 2022, the HIST 682: Topics in American History - Digital Public History: Teacher Organizing in Boston graduate course, led by UMass Boston Professor Nick Juravich, launched a collaboration with the Boston Teachers Union. The course aimed to bring graduate students in contact with the Boston Teachers Union collections held at the university, engaging with the history of the BTU, creating blog posts, and publishing digital exhibits on the union's long history. The ongoing digital history project, Exploring The Boston Teachers Union Collections, serve as access points to the BTU's history and its collections, and the fruits of the Spring 2022 Digital Public History can be found here. The goal is that more students and researchers can contribute blog posts and exhibits in the future, making the website living and adaptable to changing scholarship and understanding of our history.
