Amanda N. Johnson

Robert M. Utley Fellow, 2012 - 2014

Amanda N. Johnson was born and raised in the wonderful and underrated city of Omaha, Nebraska. She graduated from the University of Notre Dame in 2011 with a degree in American Studies and Peace Studies. Portions of her BA thesis have been published in Nebraska History Quarterly as "Illuminating the West." After finishing her undergraduate degree, she spent a year in Warsaw, Poland with the Fulbright Program, teaching and studying the appropriation of the myth of the American cowboy in central and eastern Europe. She's currently an MA student, studying the history of the American West, at Utah State University where she is incredibly lucky to work at the Western Historical Quarterly as the Robert M. Utley Fellow. When not learning more about the material culture of the Great Plains in the late 19th century, Amanda plots ways to complete her life goals of visiting the Winchester Mystery House and petting a sloth—preferably at the same time.
