A major focus of local London will be the students research and development of a Community Project Presentation in the form of a video or multimedia digital program; the production will expand upon what they learned in the Fall of 2019. The development of the presentation will take place in two phases. In Phase One, students will research historical London narratives and current social practices, for example by studying museum artefacts, tracing immigrant histories, or interviewing local citizens. In Phase Two, students will work with instructor, Patrick Mahon, as well as a professional video maker or other technical expert, to develop their final project. The outcome will be presented publicly at an agreed upon time, preferably in Spring 2020.
