Urban History and Heritage: a Baltic Sea Region Perspective


Assessment:

For 5 credits:

Students follow all the lectures (24 hours) and write a lecture diary that should be at least ten pages (25.000 characters). The lecture diary includes a commentary, not a description, of every lecture. It also includes a small case study on the question: how do the Baltic Sea region cities present their history and heritage on their web sites. What kind of similarities and differences can be found? The students should analyse the following links:

The diary should be submitted to Hannu Salmi (Cultural Histoy, Sirkkala, yellow building, 3rd floor) on Thursday 10 January 2013 at the latest. It can also be sent by post to the address: Hannu Salmi, Kulttuurihistoria, Kaivokatu 12, 20014 Turun yliopisto.

For 10 credits:

To be able to get 10 credits for the course, students should make an additional teamwork project. Each team selects a theme related to the problem of public history and urban heritage in Turku. The themes can be developped independently, they can be follow-ups of the lectures, or they can be given by the co-ordinator Hannu Salmi, hansalmi(a)utu.fi. After the launching of the teams, they are tutored by Kimi Kärki, kierka(a)utu.fi

The teamwork should result in an essay that is ten pages (25.000 characters) at the minumum. It should be submitted to Hannu Salmi (Cultural Histoy, Sirkkala, yellow building, 3rd floor) before Monday 4 February 2013. It can also be sent by post to the address: Hannu Salmi, Kulttuurihistoria, Kaivokatu 12, 20014 Turun yliopisto.
