EVENT: Shaping the West

History, Law, Land, and the Development of the American Frontier

National Association of Scholars

Join the National Association of Scholars on March 22nd at 2 pm ET as we discuss the development of the American frontier.

Why did Americans head out west, and what made them stay? How did the region come to develop its own unique identity? What was the character of the American West, and where can we see its influence today?

In this webinar, we will consider the many facets of the development of the American frontier, including the political and economic conditions that gave rise to the development of the American West, the role of railroads, and the development of a uniquely western regional identity.

The webinar will feature Richard Etulain, Professor Emeritus of History at the University of New Mexico; Patty Limerick, Professor of History and Faculty Director and Chair of the Board of the Center of the American West at the University of Colorado Boulder; and Brad Birzer, Professor of History and Russell Amos Kirk Chair in American Studies at Hillsdale College.
