Center for Applied History

The Shippensburg University Center for Applied History provides Shippensburg University students with opportunities to engage in hands-on work doing projects focused on research, service, and community outreach. 

The Center for Applied History also provides a venue for publishing original research produced by students in the Shippensburg University History program. 

Two notable recent projects include a collection of student research essays on African-American Civil War soldiers at rest in Chambersburg's Mt. Vernon Cemtetery entitled Dum, Spiro, Spero: Chambersburg's Black Civil War Soldiers and Sailors. The title is available for purchase through Amazon.com and Lulu.com.

Dum Spiro

Another book forthcoming in 2014 will be entitled, Duty Calls at Home: Central Pennsylvania Responds to the Great War.  The book will feature original essays written by Applied History graduate students about the way civilians in the Midstate experienced the events of the First World War.
