CFP: Mobs and Microbes: Market Halls, Civic Order and Public Health
Routledge is putting together on environmental history in the pre-modern era (roughly defined as 500-1800), aimed at advanced undergraduate and early postgraduate students. I post this CFP on behalf of Lori Jones, who's been asked to produce an edited volume that includes a blend of historiographical chapters and new research in the field of pre-modern environment and disease.
If anyone has short pieces they would like to volunteer for workshopping with Dr. Steven Pyne during an open workshop session at ASEH 2018 in Riverside, California, please send your writing of 1000 words or less to firstname.lastname@example.org by March 4.
The Special Section: ToxicDocs: Opening a New Era of Evidence for Policies to Protect Public Health had gone live on the Journal of Public Health Policy website as part of Issue 39.1. Editorial Board members Jerry Markowitz and David Rosner introduce ToxicDocs.org, a project they have been building up over many years. They brought the idea to us for JPHP participation and served as Guest Editors for this Special Section.
