I am here wondering what textbook people would recommend to teach a global environmental history survey course for first-years?
The Boston Seminar on Environmental History presents:
Amputated from the Land: Black Refugees from America and the Neglected Voices of Environmental History
The next speaker in the MIT Seminar on Environmental and Agricultural History will be Jessica Wang, at 2:30 on Feb. 8 in Building E51 Room 095. Her topic is “Animals, Governance, and American Globalism: Biological Management and Territorial Rule in Early Twentieth-Century Hawai‘i.”
Defining the Neglected Tropical Diseases: Research, Development, and Global Health Equity, 1970-present
I'm happy to announce a new edition of H-Environment Roundtable Reviews. This one discusses Andrew Stuhl's Unfreezing the Arctic and polar environmental studies more generally. Please enjoy and distribute!
