Andrew Isenberg was a Carson Fellow from December 2009 to August 2010 and from June 2012 to August 2012.
Andrew Isenberg is an environmental historian with an interest in the North American West and the encounter between Native Americans and European Americans. He is currently Hall Distinguished Professor of American History at the University of Kansas in Lawrence, Kansas, USA. He received his doctorate in history from Northwestern University. He is the author of The Destruction of the Bison: An Environmental History, 1750-1920 (2000) and Mining California: An Ecological History (2005), and is the editor of The Nature of Cities: Culture, Landscape, and Urban Space (2006) and The Oxford Handbook of Environmental History (2014).
At the Center, Isenberg investigated an 1832 United States government program to vaccinate Native Americans against smallpox—a program that seemingly contradicts American expansionism in the period.
