Christopher Laingen's Vita

I am interested in Midwestern rural history and land-use and human-environment relationships. My publications focus primarily on agricultural land-use change in the Midwest and Great Plains. In the classroom, I help students understand just how wondrous the world around them is, and how thankful we should be for being alive in our current place and time.
