Landscapes are persistent and dynamic characters in our lives, yet they often go unexamined. We may easily take for granted the crisscrossed and subdivided roadways, zoning ordinances, waterways, and cultural assumptions that give shape to our online maps and automated GPS systems. At the heart of WSU’s land grant mission is the idea that places matter, that they have a history, that our relationships to places are deeply connected to the people with whom we share them and the histories that animate them. But how can we better make places a conscious factor in our scholarship and research, our decision-making, our teaching, and our community-building efforts that extend beyond the University landscapes? How can we reframe landscapes that are indelibly marked by colonial and violent histories? The 2019 Center for Digital Scholarship and Curation’s Spring Symposium will highlight projects both external and internal to WSU that seek to reframe assumed narratives, representations, and relationships to and with place, new digital projects and techniques, and innovative pedagogical practices with an eye toward collaborations and meaningful partnerships.

Freshly published by the University Press of Colorado, The Nature of Hope: Grassroots Organizing, Environmental Justice, and Political Change, edited by Char Miller and Jeff Crane, includes contribution from our very own Dr. Jeffrey C. Sanders!
“The Nature of Hope focuses on the dynamics of environmental activism at the local level, examining the environmental and political cultures that emerge in the context of conflict. The book considers how ordinary people have coalesced… to demand environmental justice and highlights the powerful role of intersectionality in shaping the on-the-ground dynamics of popular protest and social change.” – University Press of Colorado
Congratulations Dr. Sanders!
Brian Stack and Peter Boag recently co-wrote an invited essay for the Journal of the Gilded Age and Progressive Era. Entitled, “George Chauncey’s Gay New York: A View from 25 Years Later,” the piece appeared online in December but the hard-copy version can now be found in JGAPE 18, no. 1 (January 2019), p. 120-132. Well done!
Dr. Peter Boag gave an interview for “BackStory with the American History Guys” and was featured in their episode 0259 “Out of the Closet: The LGBTQ Community in American History,” which published on December 6, 2018.
