Doctoral Fellow Research Project Presentation

Event date: 4/18/2018 5:30 PM - 6:30 PM Export event

The Center's Doctoral Fellow in Southwest History, Benjamin DuMontier, will present his research project findings while in residence for the academic year at the Center of Southwest Studies. His spring presentation is titled, From Rainbow Bridge to Durango War-Rations: Research & Archiving Local History in the Four Corners Area.

Ben will discuss the Ansel Hall collection, and the potential it has for researchers. This includes Hall's expeditions to Costa Rica, recruiting Boy Scouts, and his development of nature-park resources in the Rainbow Bridge - Monument Valley areas.

Ben will also speak on his work-in-progress, a digital humanities webpage showcasing the Center of Southwest Stduies' oral history collections. He hopes to display anecdotes of daily life and local ideas about the "Japanese enemy" from Colorado newspapers - as well as Durangoan's conception of the nation's defense during WWII.
