Director Richard Grusin Quoted in National Parks Article

Congratulations to C21 Director Richard Grusin for his contributions to an article, published on Mashable, about the ways the government shutdown is affecting Joshua Tree and other national parks. Of the vandals who have cut down precious Joshua trees and left large amounts of trash in the park, Grusin observes, “It seems like they are attacking nature, but they are attacking an ideology of government” that developed the national park system in the 20th century.

Grusin is the author of Culture, Technology, and the Creation of America’s National Parks (Oxford University Press, 2004).
