The Nature of Illinois: Environmental Stories of the Prairie State

Project Lead: Camden Burd

Students enrolled in HIS 51601: U.S. Environmental History engage with the field of American Environmental History through an examination of pertinent scholarship. Afterward, students researched an aspect of Illinois Environmental History in order to write, edit, record, and publish individual podcasts. The project provides students an opportunity to explore digital tools while considering storytelling, audience, and the importance of public-facing research.
