Upcoming events

As a result of COVID, all future events will be determined at a later date.

Raechel Lutz ('07-History & Art History) publishes two articles!

Raechel Lutz publishes "Petroleum's Park: How Oil Shaped the Palisades Interstate Park, 1900-1960" in the journal Technology and Culture and "Get a U.S. High School Teaching Job" in Environmental History Now.

Published in the premier journal of the history of technology, "Petroleum Park" explores the impact the oil industry had, ironically, in conservation and park creating in the U.S.   Highlighting the rewards of teaching at the secondary level with a Ph.D., "Get a U.S. High School Teaching Job" appears in a new on-line journal that advocates for broader representation in the field of environmental history.  After receiving her bachelor's degree at IC, Raechel went on to receive a Ph.D. from Rutgers University.  She has returned to campus in person and virtually on multiple occasions to mentor IC students.
