Project #3 – Middletown Film Project (2009)
Professors Karen Keddy and Pam Harwood designed this project for their Arch 429 classes.
During the semester, their students read Robert & Helen Lynd’s Middletown: A Study in Modern American Culture. For their final project, they were asked to explore the cultural and historical fabric of Muncie, Indiana, while incorporating one of the themes from Lynd’s publication.
Using archival and interpretive-historical research, they documented their findings with short videos. The videos have been uploaded to youtube. Follow the links below to watch them.
