Benjamin Johnson, University of Wisconsin at Milwaukee
Newberry Teachers' Consortium

The 1960s and early 1970s witnessed an explosion in the environmental consciousness and activism of Americans, resulting in a spate of new laws, agencies, and organizations.  This seminar will explore the most important recent scholarship about the origins and significance of environmentalism.  Seminar participants will have a discussion-based format, interpreting and conversing about important primary and secondary sources on figures and issues ranging from Rachel Carson, Earth Day, suburbanization, and the Whole Earth Catalog.
