April 23rd 2018 1:00-2:00PM - Cannabis in Colorado: What A Strange Trip It’s Been
Colorado made history in 2012 by becoming one of two states to legalize the production, distribution and sale of recreational cannabis. You might be surprised to learn however that you could also find it here in the nineteenth century. There was a strong relationship between marijuana and sugar beets—two of the most important cash crops in Colorado history. Join Colorado-based historian Nick Johnson as he discusses the history of cannabis in the Centennial State. From the plant’s introduction in the nineteenth century, through its prohibition in the twentieth to its current legal status today, Johnson explores Colorado’s unique experience with this complicated and fascinating plant.

May 8th 2018 10:30AM-12:00PM - The Evolving Urban Fabric of Denver’s Golden Triangle District
History Colorado hosts graduate students from the University of Colorado Denver’s College of Architecture and Planning as they reveal how the urban fabric (buildings, streets/blocks, and land uses) of Downtown Denver’s Golden Triangle district has evolved from its 19th century roots to a dynamic 21st century mixed-use district. The students will share the environmental, cultural, and economic forces that have transformed the Golden Triangle over the decades, the role of adaptive reuse (reclaiming old buildings for new purposes) in the district’s 150-year transformation, and peek into the possible future of the Golden Triangle of 2038.

May 14th 2018 1:00-2:00PM - Boom and Bust Series: Railroads in Colorado: What’s Old is New Again
When Colorado was bypassed by the transcontinental railway in the mid-19th century, business leaders of the young territory scrambled to keep the region from being cut-off from the rest of our growing nation. In order to do so, they turned their attention to the iron horse. Many railroads were incorporated and established thousands of miles of steel ribbons crisscrossing the state--greatly increasing the region’s economic validity. Railroads would merge, railroads would fail, and railroads would attempt to build where no one had built before. Colorado’s rail history is as imposing and variable as the Rocky Mountains themselves. Join History Colorado’s own local historian, Jack Wheeler, as he explores Colorado’s unique, diverse, and ever changing rail history.

June 11th 2018 1:00-2:00PM - Towns of Yesteryear: Colorado’s Mountain Ghost Towns
During the latter half of the 19th century, the desire to obtain instant mineral wealth was on the minds of thousands of men as they flocked west in search of gold and silver. In Colorado, instant towns sprang up in the valleys and gulches where rich rare metal deposits were being unearthed. Most of these boom towns, such as Ashcroft, Independence, St. Elmo and Tincup, are today’s iconic ghost towns--once bustling towns of activity, now largely abandoned. How did this happen? Join photography team Bob and Judith Marlowe as they share their pictures and insight into the multifaceted evolution and history of Colorado’s mountain ghost towns.

June 25th 2018 1:00-2:00PM - Boom and Bust Series: Energy in Colorado: Perspectives from the Field
For decades, Colorado has served as an epicenter for extractive and natural resource dependent industries. Many of these economic sectors are prone to boom and bust cycles, given the volatile nature of global commodity markets. What impacts does this have for communities around Colorado over time, from both the stability of their economies and to the security of residents’ livelihoods and quality of life? Join Colorado State University sociologist of environment, globalization, and development, Dr. Stephanie Malin, as she examines Colorado’s energy past, present, and future through the lenses of uranium mining and milling and unconventional oil and gas production. Dynamics related to environmental justice, persistent poverty, and additional sociological impacts of boom-bust cycles will be examined.
