The Center of the American West

Understanding what exactly the American West is about is a thorny question, whether it be approached from a historical viewpoint, an ecological framework, or even what the region means to the American populace. Looking at the American West through these lenses (and several others) is what the Center of the American West at the University of Colorado is largely about. Organized in 1989, the Center has hosted 30-40 public events each year on a multitude of Western topics, published its Reports from the Center on important Western issues, and has examined the changing dynamics of ranchlands in the region. At the site, visitors can read and download the center's various reports, read about ongoing interdisciplinary research projects, and learn about the distinguished lecture series, which has featured speakers such as Richard Rodridguez and Sherman Alexie.
