Emerging Scholars--Using Human Geography to Tell More Complex Stories about American Higher Education

Historians always have to contend with the limits of the archive, and historians of minoritized groups, such as women or African-Americans, especially have to reckon with the limited perspectives and narratives recorded in historical documents. In this talk Dr. Singh will share how thinking about the physical geography of campus spaces allows historians of higher education to tell new comprehensive histories of colleges and universities, allowing us to reckon with the legacies of the “troubled racial histories” of U.S. higher education.
