Conference Paper: Remembering the River that Used to Be: Personal Memories of Environmental Change in the Nineteenth Century


  • American Society for Environmental History Annual Meeting Riverside Convention Center Riverside, CA (map)

As part of the panel "Environments Remembered and Forgotten, Inherited and Invented," I will present new work on how nineteenth-century city dwellers recognized and documented environmental change through their personal memories. This method holds promise for locating citizen science in the nineteenth century, and for practicing citizen science today.
