March 6, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Perspectives on the transcontinental railroad and its completion at Promontory Point are as dynamic as the moment itself.

Featured presenters include Paisley Rekdal, Utah poet laureate and professor of English; Gregory Smoak, associate professor of history and director of the American West Center; and Matthew Basso, associate professor of gender studies and history. Q&A to follow. In conjunction with The Race to Promontory: The Transcontinental Railroad and the American West, on view now through May 26.
