#3032 Profiting from the Peak: Creating Colorado Springs

Instructor: Dr. John Harner

In the book Profiting From the Peak: Landscape and Liberty in Colorado Springs, the instructor charts the historical geography of Colorado Springs through ten thematic chapters.  He then will summarize the important dimensions of the city to answer the question, “What shapes Colorado Springs’ place identity?” This lecture highlights the major points and conclusions that distill the characteristics of the place that define this city, including a focus on Old Colorado City.  There will be plenty of time to ask questions after the hour presentation.


John Harner, PhD in Geography from Arizona State University.  John is a Professor in the Department of Geography and Environmental Studies at University of Colorado, Colorado Springs.
