Environmental History and the National Parks

Lecture Description

Over the last three decades, environmental history has become a vital and innovative field of historical scholarship. This lecture assesses the role of environmental history in the national parks and suggests that the field can play an important role in the management and interpretation of all parks, from Civil War battlefields to the large, ostensibly natural parks predominant in the American West.
