Aaron Barth’s three areas of expertise concern historic preservation, university & humanities lecturing, and grant writing.

Historic Preservation: Involved in Historic Preservation and Cultural Resource Management since 2002, Barth is a United States of the Interior-qualified historian, architectural historian and archaeologist. He has successfully co-authored National Register of Historic Places nominations and National Park Service-American Battlefield Protection Program reports connected with the US-Dakota Wars (1862-1864).

He is the Assistant Director of the Center for Heritage Renewal at North Dakota State University, one of the nation’s top 108 Carnegie Commission-ranked universities. He is currently one of the research assistants for the National Park Service-American Battlefield Protection Program‘s study of the US-Dakota Wars in North Dakota.

University and the Humanities: Barth is currently the vice chair of the NEH-funded North Dakota Humanities Council, and he regularly leads public humanities forums. His areas of published and scholarly expertise and university lecturing concern Great Plains History, Native History, American Western History, World History, and Public History.

  • Denise Karlström


    My name is Denise Karlström and I am working with casting in Sweden, at a production company call Meter Television.
    Meter is known for TV- programs such as “The Biggest loser”, “Masterchef” and the NBC hit Min it to win it.

    We are now conduction a nationwide casting for season 5 of the nominated TV series, “ALLT FÖR SVERIGE” (The previous working title of the show was Great Swedish adventure).
    We are looking for outgoing, fun and adventurous people for next season. They have to be Americans of Swedish descent and never have visited Sweden or any of the other Scandinavian countries before.

    Some Swedes settled down in your state when they immigrated back in the days. Therefore we would like to ask you if you know anyone with a little bit of Swedish blood that want to find out about their heritage?!
    We would be super happy and really appreciate your help if you could pass this information on or put it up on your webpage.
    Our deadline to apply is Feb 15 2015. The show will be shooting in the summer 2015.

    To apply for our show you have to go on our website http://www.greatswedishadventure.com

    Thank you so much for reading this and for your help!

    Best regards,
    Denise Karlström
