The CHA Teaching Prize


Open Career State Award, other than Canadian History

Dr. Kevin Coleman’s work with primary sources involves both innovative uses while teaching and efforts to collect and preserve vulnerable materials from the past for future research. His work with photographs was particularly noted by the committee. Using photos from the United Fruit Company’s archives, Dr. Coleman’s teaching emphasizes the value of understanding a document’s position within a chronology and how it can tell or hide a story. By moving beyond the photograph at face value, students can engage with the complicated questions that are hidden “outside of the frame.”
