Want to learn more about Gavrilo Princip? As a Spring 2014 class project, student’s in KU BCRS 208: Intermediate Bosnian-Serbo-Croatian translated the above video, adding Serbian and English subtitles for a greater audience. Access the subtitled versions here and select the language of the subtitles underneath the video.
By translating the video, students and community members participating in the #KU_WWI Twitter Project now have a non-English, regional perspective of events, providing a glimpse of how different historical narratives can be understood and interpreted.
“I like to include content-based and project-based learning into my language classes,” said BCS Instructor Marta Pirnat-Greenberg, “it motivates students and makes language learning more relevant to the them.”
