In June 2020, the journal History Australia published a series of articles in a forum entitled ‘Doing History In Urgent Times’. The journal editors invited the Australia & New Zealand Environmental History Network to provide a response, and in turn the Network asked Dr Jarrod Hore to write this response. Read his resulting essay ‘Reckoning with Urgency: Crisis & Radical Environmental History’ on the Network’s new ‘Insights’ page.
