ARHI 13182-2: Notre Dame and Its Artifacts

This course is not currently available. Please visit the Courses section for current offerings.

Instructor: Hyde Minor

The subject of this seminar is the history of the University of Notre Dame. Using artifacts as our primary source, we will explore the university’s past. Since its founding in 1842 by Reverend Edward Sorin, Notre Dame has accumulated a remarkable array of things and stuff. Rare medieval manuscripts, specimens of extinct mosquitoes, pearl-handled revolvers, seventeenth-century Dutch paintings, Native American clothing, and a professional wrestler’s robe are just a few of the objects that can be found on our campus.
