- Curatorial note from Digital Pedagogy in the Humanities: Mills Kelly has taught several iterations of an undergraduate history course entitled Lying about the Past. The course conveys historical research methods and ethics by asking students to examine and debunk historical hoaxes. For their final projects, students create a convincing hoax of their own. The results have been explosive. Alongside the emphasis on understanding history by reshaping it, we find this an excellent example of a praxis-based syllabus, in which Kelly makes it clear that he considers his students to be collaborators and depends on their active engagement to shape the course.
