    In the Spring 2012 semester, the Center for the enhancement of Teaching and Learning partnered with the College of Arts & Sciences to design and deliver a Course Redesign Institute to assist a select number of Arts & Sciences faculty with incorporating more active learning techniques and educational technologies into new or existing courses. After a competitive RFP in November, a dozen faculty members were selected to participate, representing disciplines ranging from Anthropology to Math, from English to Sociology, from Geography to History. Prior to the start of the Spring 2012 semester, CELT partnered with A&S WRD professor Jeff Rice and Biology professor Peter Mirabito to build a private resource site using PBworks to expose faculty to a myriad of ideas for how to incorporate new active learning techniques and teaching technologies into their courses. During the Spring 2012 semester, CELT conducted webinars and a number of one-to-one consultations with the ASCRDI participants, helping them to refine and realize their course redesign visions. On April 27, CELT again partnered with A&S Associate Dean Ted Schatzki and Professors Rice and Mirabito to bring together our Course Redesign Institute participants one last time to share their course redesign strategies in a series of Ignite and Pecha Kucha-style presentations.

        The presence of a Communist Party labor union deeply disturbed the local elite of Bell and Harlan Counties. Repression of the miners and their families was swift. Coal operators, merchants, the editor of the Pineville Sun, Herndon Evans, and local police forces worked in different ways to disrupt the flow of aid to the miners and their families and depicted the strikers as anti-American. Soup kitchens were attacked, miners were beaten up in their homes, and surveillance of NMU sympathizers was intense. Herndon Evans, who was also an Associated Press correspondent, used his position to send press releases across the nation coloring the situation in the coalfields as he pleased.

              The economic distress—both local and national—combined with the United Mine Workers of America’s unwillingness to support the miners provided the opening for what John Hennen calls a “radical alternative.” The National Miners Union (NMU) was the result of the American Communist Party’s decision to no longer “bore from within” established trade unions but instead to create its own unions. Pledging to back the striking miners when traditional outlets like the Red Cross were withholding aid, the NMU earned the allegiance of a small but dedicated number of miners.

                    Appalachia has often been falsely depicted as a place of isolation—geographically, culturally, economically. This sense of being apart from the rest of the nation is one of the most frequently recycled stereotypes about eastern Kentucky and is woven into numerous Hollywood films, newspaper stories, and television shows. The strike in Bell and Harlan counties in 1931-32 is one of many historical events that challenges this notion that Appalachia is “a place where time stands still.” To read more visit: https://appalachiancenter.as.uky.edu/special-collections-project
