Description of Panels

  • Public History in Practice (Shaun, Gentrice, Paige): What exactly is public history? This panel will discuss how we apply historical skills in various kinds of work. Shaun will discuss his experience researching and conducting fieldwork at Fisher’s Peak State Park, Gentrice will share their experience conducting oral histories for their thesis, and Paige will cover an array of CRM projects she worked on at Pinyon Environmental.
  • The (Built) Environment (Dale, Lucas, Alaina): Environmental history covers an array of themes, places, and spaces. From the destruction of swamps in Ohio (Dale), to the architecture of World’s Fairs (Lucas), to the witch-hunts in New England (Alaina), this panel will engage with the dichotomy of nature versus culture as well as the inclusion of the built environment within environmental history.
  • The West (Gus, Hailey, Jacie): What do the American West and space have in common? They are “the final frontier.” This panel brings together the history of labor in the copper mines of Arizona (Hailey), prostitution in Wyoming and Utah (Jacie), and a study of gender and feminism on the hit television show Star Trek (Gus)
