Description

The College of Liberal Arts' University Forum Lecture Series presents "Reno, Las Vegas and the Strip: A Tale of Three Cities, 1945 – 2014," a talk by Eugene Moehring, professor of history, UNLV.

Moehring's presentation will analyze the development of Reno and Las Vegas since 1945 with special emphasis on the years after 1970 when corporate gaming, megaresorts, deindustrialization, shifting moral values, more leisure time and other factors helped shape the course of both cities’ development. This talk will also describe how the Strip converted the county’s portion of the metropolitan area into its own informal city run by the Clark County commissioners.
