Looking for other OH/environmental history scholars

Hi, all. I'm writing my master's thesis based on an oral history project I did on an environmental movement in Austin, Texas. I have not yet seen any scholarly writing on OH methodology specific to environmental history and was hoping to hear from this community regarding scholarship along these lines. Thank you for any leads.
