Making Objects Speak: Portable Audio Guides for Teaching with Visual Culture in the Humanities

The creation of ten portable educational audio guides to objects in New York City museums, historic buildings, and urban neighborhoods to be used in undergraduate teaching.

To exemplify and demonstrate the pedagogical value of engaging undergraduate humanities students directly with the artifacts of past societies in an academically structured way, the ?Making Objects Speak? project will produce ten prototypical downloadable scholarly audio tours of New York City museum collections, historic buildings, and neighborhoods, along with supporting workshops, web-based research materials, learning activities, and a toolkit designed to facilitate national replication of this model.
