Historian, writer, and educator David J. Jepsen will discuss his new book Contested Boundaries: a New Pacific Northwest History. The first regional textbook published in thirty years includes a collection of stories about people contesting the political, economic, and social barriers that blocked their path to equality over the last two centuries. The narrative traces the experiences of Native Peoples, African Americans, Asians, and other immigrants across the centuries as they struggled to hurdle one boundary after another during settlement, industrialization, economic calamity, world war, and globalization.
