Gordon’s Institute for Public History Receives City Award


“On January 27, Salem Mayor Kim Driscoll (center) presented an Innovative Programming award to Gordon professors David Goss (history) and Kristina Wacome-Stevick (theatre)—codirectors of The Institute for Public History—on behalf of the Salem Park and Recreation Department for their work with the city’s Pioneer Village. Professor Goss has been instrumental in restoring the ‘Puritan village’ site and Professor Wacome-Stevick has worked to staff it with trained historic interpreters and theatrical programming. The project was the responsibility of Gordon’s Institute for Public History under the auspices of the Global Education Department.” —Dr. Cliff Hersey, director of Global Education
