Call for Papers –
Special issue of Environmental History:
The Environmental History of Canada
Environmental History invites submissions for a special issue on Canada, to be published in 2007. This issue will be co-sponsored by the American Society for Environmental History, the Forest History Society, and NiCHE: Network in Canadian History & Environment / Nouvelle initiative canadienne en histoire de l’environnement, and guest edited by Matthew Evenden and Alan MacEachern in cooperation with journal editor Mark Cioc.
Canada offers a wide range of topics, scales, and problems to the environmental historian. It is the second largest country in the world, home of diverse ecosystems, and neighbour to three oceans. It is the embodiment of the developed world, though much of its surface remains by global standards undeveloped. And its unique relationship to the United States – united longitudinally by climate, geology, and biology, separated latitudinally by history and culture – makes it particularly well-suited to comparative, transnational, and theoretical work.
Although we welcome submissions on any topic, theme, period or spatial scale, we particularly encourage papers that situate Canadian topics within the international literature or which explore comparative or transnational questions. This issue of Environmental History is defined by national boundaries, but its contents ideally will question the place of boundaries in environmental history scholarship.
Potential contributors are invited to submit two-page proposals by 1 December 2005. Final submissions will be expected by 1 August 2006 and conform to the journal’s submission guidelines (http://www.lib.duke.edu/forest/Publications/EH/ehguide.html).
Please direct all correspondence and submissions to the guest editors, via NiCHE@uwo.ca. All submissions will be acknowledged by email.
