History

Creating the Series

This inaugural series in the College, the Mountain Studies Lecture Series, was born out of a previous event hosted by Appalachian Studies, also housed in the college. An International Mountain Studies Symposium was hosted at the university in 2019, that brought together international scholars specializing in mountain studies across the globe to engage with students, faculty and the community for a one day academic event.
