Dane Vanhoozer, a second-year student in the History Department’s M.A. program, recently accepted a position as a paid intern with the Colorado Encyclopedia of the Colorado Humanities. As a Content Specialist for the Colorado Encyclopedia, he researches and writes short articles on topics germane to the history of Colorado. For example, he has written on the elk culling program that Rocky Mountain National Park implemented in 2009 to address the environmental issues caused by the overpopulation of elk in the park. Dane is also responsible for obtaining permission to repurpose articles and other materials that already exist on Colorado topics, such as the dust bowl, Colorado National Monument, etc., to include in the encyclopedia. As an M.A. student at CSU, Vanhoozer is focusing on Cultural Resource Management and Environmental History. He also worked this past summer with the USFS fighting fires in Alaska.
