Over the last two decades environmental history has developed at an amazing pace, broadening and deepening our understanding of human interaction with nature, climate, landscape and resources across two millennia.
This conference, the flagship annual event of the Institute of Historical Research, will explore where environmental history has been and where it is going, its relationship to other scholarly disciplines, and the ways in which historians of the environment can inform global green awareness today.
Speakers include William Beinart, Alfred Crosby, John McNeill, Harriet Ritvo and Donald Worster. There will also be a policy discussion panel featuring English Heritage, the Royal Geographical Society and the Royal Society. We will also feature several major book launches over the two days.
