Overview

Members of AASLH's Climate & Sustainability Affinity Group share ideas about how the history of climate and the environment (and deepening understanding of environment and social justice connections) can inform research and development of public programming related to the U.S. Semiquincentennial. Using a popcorn format, Carpenter will address “What is the historic value of place in the context of unfinished revolution,” Reid will share “How does environmental & climate history inform us about places over time,” and Robinson will consider “How do ongoing place-based projects realize this potential”?
