2021 NCHE Conference

Place and time are the coordinates of all historical developments and events. Some are natural, like the geological formation of Utah’s Salt Lake between 10 and 4 million years ago. Others are human and social, like the fall of the Bastille on July 14, 1789 or the collapse of the Berlin Wall exactly two-hundred years later. Geography and history serve as a matrix of time and place and as a context for events.
