Dedicated to advancing scholarly and public understanding of the past, present, and future of western North America, the Center supports research, teaching, and reporting about western land and life in the United States, Canada, and Mexico.
We're pleased to unveil the Center's first new website since 2011. We hope you enjoy the larger images, mobile-friendly layout and updated look and feel, which better matches Stanford's institutional identity. We are also happy to offer much-improved course listings, drawn directly from Stanford's catalogue. We are also proud to launch "& the West," a news blog run by our writer in residence Felicity Barringer, and new data visualizations and multimedia.
