About Me

My name is Hailey Doucette, and I am a master’s student in the history department at Colorado State University. I am on track to finish my Master of Arts in May 2023. Post master’s degree, I plan to pursue a Ph.D. in history. My master’s thesis work looks at Tonto National Forest in Arizona. I am specifically interested in looking at a place-based history of Oak Flats, an Apache sacred site, popular climbing location, and soon to be a copper mine. My history courses have focused on environmental history, public lands history, and public history. Additionally, I am interested in deep history and environmental justice issues related to the forced removal of Indigenous tribes forced from their homelands. I have held various internship positions including, at the Public Lands History Center, the CSU Agriculture and Natural Resource Archives, and the CSU Extension Office. Currently, I am working as the Digital Projects Assistant at the CSU Special Collections and as a Research Assistant for Barry Peterson, who is writing a book on the life of Newton Minow. In November 2021, I joined the Climate Adaption Partnership Leadership Team, where I am helping foster interdisciplinary research and work with other researchers to help address complex challenges of climate adaptation. Additionally, I am a Graduate Teaching Assistant for US History Before 1867, where I assist with discussion and exam reviews, grade papers and exams, and serve as a liaison between the professor and students. My portfolio contains interviews, a podcast, work from my internships and courses, and publications.
