ON THE NINTH SEASON OF THE ARCHIVE PROJECT, ENJOY DISCUSSIONS FROM PORTLAND ARTS & LECTURES, PORTLAND BOOK FESTIVAL, AND OTHER COMMUNITY EVENTS FROM OUR HOME IN PORTLAND, OREGON AND BEYOND.
Char Miller is the W.M. Keck Professor of Environmental Analysis and History at Pomona College. His teaching and research reflect his fascination with all things environmental. Classes on U.S. environmental history, water in the U.S. West, and public lands management, like those on urbanization, have deeply informed his writing—and his community engagements. Some of these are reflected in his recent books, including Natural Consequences: Intimate Essays for a Planet in Peril (2022) and the award-winning West Side Rising: How San Antonio’s 1921 Flood Devastated a City and Sparked a Latino Environmental Justice Movement (2021). He is also author of Hetch Hetchy: A History in Documents (2020), Not So Golden State: Sustainabilityvs. the California Dream (2016), and editor of The Nature of Hope:Grassroots organizing, Environmental Justice, and Political Change (2019).
Our events, classes, and seminars bring the community together to hear, learn, and discuss the most compelling issues and ideas of our day. We hope you will join us in our downtown Literary Arts space, online, and at partnering venues across Portland and Oregon.
