The Center for Excellence in the Arts and Humanities (CEAH) fosters ongoing faculty research clusters (or working groups). Research Clusters are faculty-initiated groups that focus on topics using diverse cross-disciplinary approaches. They examine issues from varied artistic, humanistic, and scientific perspectives to create a unique, collaborative, and innovative interdisciplinary understanding of that issue.

Conceptualizing the Prairie: Environmental Studies and Cultural Memory

Co-conveners:
    Dr. Matthew Sivils, Assistant Professor, English   (sivils@iastate.edu)
    Dr. W. Stanley Harpole, Assistant Professor, EEOB  (harpole@iastate.edu)

This group analyzes materials that touch on all aspects of the prairie ecology, making knowledge about its past and present more accessible to the general public and university educators. Through academic publications and the development of educational materials, it will provide resources to increase public awareness and understanding of this landscape, which in so many ways connects not only to the region's economic vitality and ability to literally "feed the world," but also to our regional and national identity and imagination.
