The Center of the American West, as part of its mission to increase awareness and knowledge about a variety of issues we face as Westerners, hosts a number of public events every year.


We offer panel discussions, film screenings, public readings with notable Western authors, and much much more! We also host several annual events, our Stegner Award, which honors a prominent Westerner, our “Bipartisanship (and Friendship) Happen!” series, which brings pairs of accomplished and dedicated public officials together to talk about their determination to extend the ties of shared enterprise and friendship across the divisions of recent times, and most recently our Historians Imagine series, a monthly webinar with Patty Limerick and Matthew Jacobson who talk with path-breaking historians about the inventiveness and vision of their work. Check out our upcoming events and join us; we have something to offer everyone!
