Public History Colloq--Public Lands, Public History: Putting History to Work for the United States Forest Service
Leisl Carr-Childers and Michael Childers, Colorado State Univ (Ft. Collins)
(Jt Session with Science/Technology Colloquium)

Childers and Carr Childers will discuss their current project, a new history of the USDA Forest Service from 1960-2020, and the historical methodologies that undergird their work. In particular, they will address what it means to work in applied history, how applied history works (or does not work) with regard to public lands management agencies, and how public history, applied history, and working as a public intellectual speaks to history taking a public turn.
