The Institute for Public History sponsors a variety of research projects, which can be accessed here.

Projects include:

  • Take Back the Archive: A public history project created by UVa faculty, students, librarians, and archivists. It is meant to preserve, visualize, and contextualize the history of rape and sexual violence at the University of Virginia, honoring individual stories and documenting systemic issues and trends.
  • Explorations in Black Leadership: Videotaped interviews of African-American leaders, conducted by Civil Rights historian Julian Bond. These oral histories focus both on the historical circumstances of individuals' lives and on the factors critical to their achievements.
  • The University History Project: A compendium of special research projects (The View from Here), individual stories of alumni (The Alumni Lawn Survey; The Women's Survey), and materials related to the study of history (The History of the University of Virginia in the 20th Century).
