This program will look at U.S. expansion, from Manifest Destiny and overseas imperial conquests, to present-day resource wars. It will focus on the place-making processes inherent in each stage of expansion, and on the imprints they have left on the human and physical landscape. It will examine imperial places that have been shaped by each era of expansion, and in turn have shaped each era.
