Andrew Watson's current research includes a project on the history of coal in Canada during the first half of the 20th century. He is also working with the Sustainable Farm Systems project, which explores the socioecological transition in agriculture, from traditional, organic practices at the end of the 19th century to modern, industrialized processes by the end of the 20th century.
7 Nights of History, a free public lecture series hosted by the Department of History, is the successor to 7 Days that Changed the World. The past is all around us, but it only becomes history when we apply the tools of the historical discipline to think historically. Each month a different U of S historian will deliver a public lecture that brings historical thinking to bear on a problem to better understand the human condition and navigate our way into the future. The public is encouraged to ask questions and join in discussion and conversation after each talk.
