Rewriting UMD

06 November 2017

The University of Maryland has a rich and storied history. That history has been told in various forms of media, including books, newspaper articles, and film. Through this scene we wish to tell some of the lesser known histories of the University of Maryland by connecting these stories to the locations themselves. In many ways the locations in this scene speak for themselves, but in order to show the depths of the history tied to these locations, we have tagged them with both text and videos that go into greater depth and explore alternative or even counter histories. Each of the histories you read here are based on research found in the university archives or other credible sources.
