This is the course site for Century America, a COPLAC-Sponsored project underwritten by the Teagle Foundation. The course was first team taught in Spring 2014 by Dr. Ellen Pearson, Associate Professor of History at the University of North Carolina Asheville and Dr. Jeffrey McClurken, Professor of History and American Studies at the University of Mary Washington and included students from 11 different COPLAC institutions. The goal: to build a digital project about the experiences of these 11 institutions and their communities during the era of the Great War. In Spring of 2015, the course ran again, this time with pairs of students from 6 other COPLAC schools working to add sites about their communities during the Great War.
