In collaboration with the DeKalb County History Center we are pleased to offer this unique workshop. The DeKalb County History Center will be playing host to the traveling Smithsonian exhibit “Crossroads: Change in Rural America.” Matt Meachum from Illinois Humanities, will be presenting at the event to discuss how our local history groups can compliment this national story. Additionally, guest speakers Ann Keating and Will Barnett of North Central College will be joining us and presenting “An Overview of 19th and 20th Century Agricultural History in Northern Illinois.”
In addition, Dr. Alicia Schatteman, Associate Professor at Northern Illinois University, will provide two presentations focused on data collection and organization as well as how to tell an impactful story with your data. There will also be an update on the progress of the new DeKalb County History Center website.
