History Harvest: Marineland
Do you have memories of Marineland? Photos? Slides? Brochures? Postcards?
Flagler College’s Digital Humanities Center is seeking your contributions to tell the story of this local attraction. Join Flagler College between 12 and 3 for their History Harvest, where they will scan your old photographs, slides, and memorabilia. You will leave with your items intact and your contributions made public on the digital archive!
Why are your photographs important? Because history often leaves out the audience. We know the history of Marineland through its organizational archives, but we know little about the everyday experience of the place and its marine residents. How did Marineland shape your view of marine life? Community contributions will help us learn more about human-animal interactions.
Over the course of its 83-year history, Marineland has grown, shifted, and changed. Help tell the story of Marineland’s animal life and increase the understanding of how the local community has lived alongside non-human creatures!
The scan-a-thon will be followed by a talk with Marineland historian Terran McGinnis and discussion with Dr. Kelly Enright, beginning at 3 pm.
Date/time: October 10, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 4:30 pm
Presented By:Terran McGinnis, Facility Historian and Manager of Community Development, Marineland Dr. Kelly Enright, Director of Historical Studies, Flagler College
