Citizen Historians and the Making of Place
"This is the place," said Brigham Young (allegedly). Famous, but somewhat inaccurate: as humans, we don't find places. We make places. Brad Westwood, director of the Utah State Historical Society, and Jared Farmer, history professor at Stony Brook University, join Marcus Smith to discuss the role of history in the making of place. Jared Farmer is the keynote speaker at the 61st Annual State History Conference on September 5-8, 2013 in Salt Lake City, Utah. Visit for more information.—Original airdate: 8/29/2013
