Eric J. Morgan, assistant professor in Democracy and Justice Studies and History, recently had an article, “Open Spaces of Democracy: Connecting Students, Wilderness, and Community,” published in the February issue of the Journal of Sustainability Education. Appearing in the special issue on Place, Learning, and Resilience, Morgan’s article chronicles a semester-long civic engagement project, exploring the efforts of a DJS senior seminar course in its collaboration with the Baird Creek Preservation Foundation, a local wilderness preservation organization. The essay reflects on the role of students in their communities, their connections to both the idea of an actual wilderness, and the challenges and rewards of civic engagement.
