This one-day, 90-minute session highlights the environmental history research students are conducting at Boise State University (Idaho). It will feature three digital poster presentations on a wide array of topics followed by a roundtable discussion on environmental issues in the Pacific Northwest.Topics included are: archeological research at a Roman site in northern Italy; the role of tourism in environmental conservation in Bermuda; mining and its effects on the Amungme people of Papua, Indonesia; historic preservation of the landscape of incarceration at Minidoka National Historic Site, where Japanese Americans were incarcerated during WWII; the development of urban parks in Boise; and Native American women's environmental and cultural activism during the Red Power Movement in Washington and Oregon. We will also briefly discuss the state of Environmental History at Boise State and what opportunities exist here for studying and researching in the field at the undergraduate, graduate, and post-graduate levels.
