Settlement and resettlement. Booms and busts. Seas of grass and clouds of dust. The landscape of the Great Plains is one of change, and Oklahoma in particular provides a unique opportunity to see what these changes have wrought. From indigenous occupation, to the forced resettlement of native tribes, to the Land Runs and Lotteries, and the oil booms and busts, Oklahoma provides a rich venue for the study of the transformation of landscape.
The conference committee is currently soliciting proposals for papers, special sessions, and panel discussions relating to the conference theme. However, papers on all material culture and landscape topics of interest to the Society are welcome. Note:Only papers submitted by PAS:APAL members and registered participants will be accepted for the program.
