Lecture on American environmental history, March 27

The Friends of the UT Arlington Library will host Dr. Jeff Crane as their guest speaker on Friday, March 27, 2009 at 7:30 p.m.  The program will be held in the 6th floor Central Library Parlor. 

Crane joined the faculty of Sam Houston State University in Huntsville, Texas, in fall 2006 and is currently an assistant professor of history.  He earned his Ph.D. in history from Washington State University in 2004.  His research and writings focus on western and environmental history.

Crane will be discussing the book he and Michael Egan edited entitled Natural Protest:  Essays in American Environmental History, published by Routledge Press in November 2008.  The book presents a cutting-edge perspective on American environmentalism and environmental history.  It is the first collection of original essays to offer a cohesive social and political examination of environmental awareness, activism, and justice throughout U. S. history.  Copies of the book will be available for sale during the reception following Crane’s presentation to the Friends.       

The Central Library is located at 702 Planetarium Place.  If you need a special accommodation to fully participate in this program, please contact Betty Wood at bwood@uta.edu or 817-272-7421.
