Drought in the Great Plains is Focus of Apr. 1-4, 2014, Symposium in Lincoln, Neb.

Maybe it’s not dry right now (early March 2014) where you are (say, Virginia), or maybe it is (say, California, in a big, serious way).   But in the Great Plains of the United States, drought and its effects on water resources are a constant reality or at least threat, and this has had a powerful influence on the region’s history, culture, economics, environment, and law.  Those impacts of drought are the focus of “Drought in the Life, Cultures, and Landscapes of the Great Plains,” Apr. 1-4, 2014, in Lincoln, Nebraska.  This is the 40th annual symposium of the Center for Great Plains Studies, located at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.  For more information, visit http://www.unl.edu/plains/2014-symposium; phone (402) 772-3082; or e-mail: cgps@unl.edu.
