Travel with Students
In May 2018, Dr. Earls' History & Memory of the Holocaust course included a field trip to Washington DC for an intensive study weekend at the US Holocaust Memorial Museum. Her 2018 class piloted this new experience facilitated by the USHMM, which included a special guided tour, meeting with two Holocaust survivors to hear their stories, listening to a lecture from W. Jake Newsome, PhD, and time processing and discussing the history, memory, and memorialization of the Holocaust.
In January 2019 Dr. Earls led a group of 18 students with colleague Dr. Emmaleigh Kirchner to Ireland, for a 9-day exploration of Dublin, Galway, and Belfast, in conjunction with their Fall 2018 courses on the history and the contemporary conditions of crime, policing, and imprisonment in Ireland.
