I just will say that it worth every minute spent! Very inspiring, clear, interesting. Lot of examples. Boosts creativity even in such academic discipline as history. Beautiful speakers!
Very interesting perspectives. I would have liked more that related to small scale rural projects that could be undertaken with limited human and economic resources.
A very engaging course for anyone interested in public history. Helps in thinking creatively and about considering who is missing from your audience.
Awesome course for those who really want to change the perspective towards the application pf human science in daily life.
