"Such issues are complex for everyone.  Wonderful to see the need to start the discussion (and dissection) of such issues in the classroom.  Another great book that tackles complex issues while remaining accessible is Peter Metchalf's…"

"There is a ton of new material and research coming out of UAF particularly right now.  With climate change impacting Alaska, scientists are connected the present with a former Beringian landscape.  It's very relevant and germane to…"

"It's great that the specific article in the book along with the lecture inspired you about how vast and varied Alaska's land and people are, but it sounds like you already have an important tool--life experience.  Being able…"

"Haven't read it but heard about it.  I'm really excited about this type of approach to explaining the significance of the past--using one topic in order to see the countless linkages.  It provides an alternative to…"

"Based on the discussions so far, I put together a list of books I thought you might want to look: 1)  John f. Hoffecker is one of the leading researchers on Beringia.  I found A Prehistory of the North: Human Settlement of the Higher…"

"Fantastic response, Eli.  You took away the important message, alright.  The land was and continues to be a shaper of culture and history, and in turn, it too is in constant flux.  Next class will shift to another major agent of…"
