Funded by the John B. Hurford ’60 Center for the Arts and Humanities, this year's Summer Doculab Fellows researched the history and memory of Philadelphia's 1976 celebration of the American Bicentennial with Visiting Assistant Professor of English Thomas Devaney, who was inspired by the subject following a course he taught on Philadelphia as part of the Tri-Co Philly Program.
