Distinguished History Lecture featuring Dr. Adam Hodge

Environment and Culture: Insights from Wind River Shoshone History

Ecology and Ethnogenesis: 
An Environmental History of the Wind River Shoshones, 1000-1868

Published by University of Nebraska Press as part of the New Visions in Native American and Indigenous Studies Series, Dr. Hodge’s book is a major contribution to environmental history, ethnohistory, and Native American history. It explores the origins of the Eastern Shoshone Tribe based on interdisciplinary research in history, archaeology, anthropology, and natural sciences and emphasizes the forces – such as climate change, disease epidemics, and the horse revolution – that shaped the Shoshone communities that Lewis and Clark and others met during the early nineteenth century.

An Ohio native, Dr. Adam Hodge specializes in early American history with an emphasis on the indigenous and environmental history of the North American West. Earning a Ph.D. in History from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln in 2013, Dr. Hodge holds a M.A. in History from Kent State University and a B.A. in History from Thiel College with a minor in Political Science.
