For the fourth 1·Lecture we invite Timothy Davis to visit Amsterdam and to share his expertise on National Park Roads in North-America. Davis, a historian with the U.S. National Park Service, has published and lectured widely on America’s national parks and is the author of the recent published book National Park Roads.
For most Americans, to visit a national park is to experience its roads. While it’s easy to lament that fact and to see roads as modern intrusions into otherwise pristine nature, Tim Davis insists that roads and road building sit at the very heart of national park history. Roads shape the view, define the line between preservation and use, and demonstrate above all else that national parks are landscapes where nature and culture intersect.
