Place Work by Students in Environmental History

Professor Andrew Stuhl  of the Environmental Studies Program asked his students to complete a Place Paper in his American Environmental History course.  The assignment they completed was called a “Place Paper,” wherein they selected a place of importance to them and narrated its environmental history.

These papers give readers insight into one way of studying place from a historical and environmental perspective.
