The Sesquicentennial Scholar Series is starting up again after a brief summer hiatus. In honor of Colorado Springs' sesquicentennial anniversary, the CSPM unveiled a new exhibit, COS@150. Throughout the commemorative year, we invite you to explore these stories through a series of regional history lectures. The next 2021 scholar series lecture will be a Virtual Lecture Sense of Place in Colorado Springs on Saturday, August 21 at 2 p.m. presented by John Harner. In Harner's book Profitting From the Peak: Landscape and Liberty in Colorado Springs, Harner charts the historical geography of Colorado Springs through ten thematic chapters, then summaries the important dimensions of the city to answer the question, "What shapes Colorado Springs' place identity?" This lecture highlights the major points and conclusions to distill the characteristics of place that define the city. John Harner is a Professor in the Department and Environmental Studies at the University of Colorado Colorado Springs. This lecture will be on Zoom and Facebook Live.
