New Virtual Exhibition: American Land Rush

In the Environment & Society Portal's latest virtual exhibition, former RCC fellow Sara Gregg tells the story of one participant in the largest homestead boom in US history, revealing the erratic fortunes of farm life reflected in the abundant economic, political, and personal uncertainties of the era. The exhibition is richly illustrated with photographs and hand-written letters.

You can visit the exhibition here.

Lunchtime Colloquium

The lunchtime colloquium series consists of short, 20–30 minute presentations followed by a question and answer session. The presentations this semester will be held virtually with the opportunity to engage in a zoom discussion with the speaker after the talk. All presentations are also recorded and published on the RCC's YouTube channel. For the full program and links for live-streaming, see here.

Seeing The Woods

The RCC Blog "Seeing The Woods" helps reveal the long and complex relationship between humans and nature. With regular new series and individual contributions, it demonstrates the relevancy and importance of humanistic and historical perspectives in discussions about current environmental challenges.
