I am currently organizing an undergraduate seminar (at present 11 students nearly all of them senior AMS majors) entitled “Opening and Closings in the American West.” My approach is both topical and chronological, ie, I’m treating an “Opening” or a “Closing” (or both at once as is so often the case) in accumulating chronological sequence. To this end, I would appreciate sincerely any suggestions you may care to make regarding topics, assigned readings, and/or activities.
Regards and best wishes for a good summer,
