The Boston Environmental History Seminar is an occasion for scholars as well as interested members of the public to discuss aspects of American environmental history from prehistory to the present day. Presenters come from a variety of disciplines including history, urban planning, and environmental management. Six to eight sessions take place annually during the academic year, and most focus on works in progress.

On behalf of the Environmental Data and Governance Initiative, I'm posting the first fruits of our invitation to environmental and other historians, two annotated bibliographies on environmental transitions resembling the current one under Trump. These are first drafts; please feel free to nominate your own or others' scholarship to be added.

CHEW CONFERENCE 2017
This week, the American Academy of Peditrics sent out an advertising blast, alerting all of us pediatricians that we can pay for a variety of books and online courses to improve our knowledge about obesity, oral health, and food allergies in children. I'm not particularly interested in giving them (more) money at this point in my training, but if you're anything like me, you probably grasp any opportunity to talk about your interest in the history of nutrition. I wish the AAP had sent out their email earlier.
