Tonight was our last speaker for 2015, and we had a wonderful two hours with Karilyn Crockett. Crockett received her PhD from the American Studies Program at Yale in 2013 and now holds a position with the Boston Mayor’s Office. Her research investigates large-scale land use changes in the U.S. and how these changes propel new kinds of twentieth century social movements and political organizations among grassroots actors.

Her presentation was on anti-highway protests in Boston and ranged much further to discuss filling gaps in the archival record, non-traditional history research, and community involvement.
