A new issue of the International Review of Environmental History is out now. Featuring tributes to Eric Pawson alongside articles on topics as diverse as sea monsters and de-extinction, its key themes include the shaping of careers and knowledge in historical geography/environmental history, nature in cultural memory and representation, and environmental change in New Zealand. Download individual articles or the entire journal free from ANU e-press, here.
The International Review of Environmental History takes an interdisciplinary and global approach to environmental history. It publishes on all thematic and geographical topics of environmental history, but especially encourages articles with perspectives focused on or developed from the southern hemisphere and the ‘global south’. This includes but is not limited to Australasia, East and South East Asia, Africa, and South America.
The journal’s goal is to be read across disciplines, not just within history. It encourages scholars to think big and to tackle the challenges of writing environmental histories across different methodologies, nations, and timescales. It embraces interdisciplinary, comparative, and transnational methods, while still recognising the importance of locality in understanding these global processes.
