Kelly Lytle Hernandez, UCLA speaks in this fourth installment in the lecture series "From the Civil War to the Pacific Century: Sesquicentennial Reflections on State Power and the American West."

With the passage of the Homestead Act, the Pacific Railroad Act, and the Morrill Act in 1862, the U.S. federal government drew a new blueprint for colonizing and developing the American West. Featuring a range of prominent historians, this lecture series will explore how state power shaped the West and how the West reshaped state power over the past 150 years.

Sponsored by the Center for the Study of the Pacific Northwest, the Simpson Center for the Humanities, and the University of Washington Libraries.

Free and open to the public.
