Kane Hall Room 130
University of Washington, Seattle
Linda Nash, Department of History, University of Washington, will speak on Seattle’s Environmental History
This winter, the University of Washington Department of History has as their Winter 2016 Lecture Series: Excavating Seattle’s Histories: People, Politics, Place. In the third talk of the popular series, UW History Associate Professor Linda Nash will examine how the history of Seattle has been tied to the natural materials people found here, and the things they brought from other places. Nash will emphasize how the city’s social and economic life, culture, and politics have been shaped by the movement of resources, as they were consumed and transformed, imported and exported, allocated and exhausted. Copies of Nash’s book will be available for sale at the event.
