Dr. Nichelle Frank is an Assistant Professor of U.S. History at Utah State University Eastern, studying the effects of the U.S. environmental and historic preservation movements on cultural landscapes in intermountain mining towns from the nineteenth century to the present. Her courses include survey U.S. history courses, women in U.S. history, and public history. In the classroom, she incorporates historic documents, artifacts, music, images, films, maps, and other highly visual elements as she encourages students to pursue topics of their own interest. This classroom experience delves into the intersections of environmental, architectural, women's, race, and transcultural histories in the realms of public history and historic preservation. Dr. Frank also works with organizations such as the National Council on Public History, HistoriCorps, the Public Lands History Center, and university of Colorado's Center for the American West to bring a historical perspective to current affairs.
