Alison Hirsch, FAAR, has been awarded long-term research fellowship for The Huntington, a collections-based research institute that promotes humanities scholarship. Alison is one of 13 yearlong fellows awarded with this prestigious opportunity.


As the 2024–25 Shapiro Center for American History & Culture Fellow at The Huntington, Hirsch will continue her research on the Tulare Lake Basin and book-in-progress, The Other California: Land, Labor, and Liberated Futures along Phantom Shores. She will also be giving a public lecture on October 16, 2024.

Alison B. Hirsch is a landscape theorist, historian and designer. Both her design and written work focus on how understanding cultural practices and social histories and memories can (and should) contribute to the design of meaningful places. While serving as Director of the Landscape Architecture + Urbanism program, Hirsch established the Landscape Justice Initiative which serves as a platform to address questions of environmental, spatial and climate justice at local and systemic scales.
