Inside the Lewis Collaborative


M4F engages WashU graduate students and other university and community-based participants in a co-taught, year-long (two semester), interdisciplinary seminar, a practicum, and an integrated series of activities including public discussions modeling earlier “history workshop” movements designed to facilitate more participatory, inclusive and transformative interventions in history and memory.
