Independent Study Projects and Internships

These individualized learning experiences are designed and supervised in conjunction with teaching faculty advisors to fulfill departmental course requirements.

Current Projects

Patriotism, the Pacific Northwest and the
Ku Klux Klan

Curated by Elizabeth Velonza, Spring Semester 2020


This exhibit presents examples of how the KKK of the 1920s
used patriotic themes and sentiments as a key component in its
strategy to recruit new members. Other items show how this same
tactic remains a prominent feature among current extremist groups.
