In the text student needs to explain  1) the overall idea of the public history project, 2) its elements and other details about its content;  3) possible audience for such project (who needs this and why) and ways of communication with the public; 4) analysis of (or references to) similar existing public history projects ; 5) possible plan of implementation and its further development. Exam is organized in a form of a take home final essay: this is essay-long discussion of randomly selected two questions from the list of exam questions. Exam asks students to debate across empirical material and different approaches covered in the course. Specifically, in answering each of these questions, students are required to use at least three individual pieces of writing from this course syllabus, not to repeat material in discussion of each of the two questions, and in answering both questions to draw on only one piece of readings that you presented on in class. Late assignments will be marked down by 10% of the mark per day and if you plagiarize, you fail. Formula for calculating accumulative and final marks:
