Gender, Landscape, and the West: Molly Rozum on "Grasslands Grown"
12 p.m.–1 p.m.
Molly Rozum and ICW Director William Deverell discuss Rozum's book Grasslands Grown: Creating Place on the U.S. Northern Plains and Canadian Plains.
Rozum explores the two related concepts of regional identity and sense of place by examining a single North American ecological region over generations. The discussion will include her thoughts on gendered landscapes and the critical role of environmental awareness in both regional identity formation and a sense of place.
