Transnational Connections, International Conservation Co-operation, and the Construction of the National Park Idea as 'America's Best Idea' during the Cold War

January 1, 2016

My dissertation "Transnational Connections, International Conservation Cooperation, and the Construction of the National Park Idea as 'America's Best Idea' during the Cold War" examines the international work of the US National Park Service, the influence and context of transnational national park co-operation, and the Cold War meaning and importance of the national park idea more broadly. The study is centered on two broad questions, focusing on how the national park idea became constructed as an "American" idea globally and what larger themes were connected to this, and the significance of transnational influences and international connections to the development of the national park idea.
