Traveling to the Past: Trick Photography for Historians and Writers

This workshop was developed in association with the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts and is partially underwritten by the Department of Education and the National Committee for the Performing Arts.

In this workshop, participants learn how to take their class on a trip to the past through “trick photography,” a process where students use free web or tablet-based technology to sneak posed photographs of themselves into historical images. This easy-to-learn strategy engages the “selfie” generation in the research of primary sources, building their empathy for the historical figures and everyday people who lived before them. Participants should bring their tablet or a laptop and camera for this exciting hands-on workshop! Continuing Education Units available.
