The Farm and the Archive: ‘Old MacDonald’ Moves Online

February 18 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm

At the 2022 Unveiling Our Treasures, this year’s Hart-Melvin Archival Research Fellows, Dr. Ethan Mannon and Chloe Metcalf, will present their work to create a Virtual Farm Tour by drawing on sources in the Southern Appalachian Archives. The presentation will describe the pair’s research in the archives that fueled the creation of this online tour of western North Carolina agriculture in the early decades of the twentieth century and will include the debut of the video tour of the Virtual Farm. Both Dr. Mannon, an Associate Professor of English, and Chloe Metcalf, an English major, believe that the details of this region’s farming history remain relevant. If you are interested in farming, gardening, or food, please consider attending this event!
