This month’s episode focuses on resource development in British Columbia. Last November, theNature/History/Society group hosted a roundtable on hydro in BC, featuring Jeremy Mouat (University of Alberta), Tina Loo (University of British Columbia), and Paul Hirt (Arizona State). In this episode we highlight a selection from Tina Loo’s talk on hydro-electric development and high modernism called ‘Towards an Environmental History of ‘Progress’.
You can listen to the full roundtable on hydro in BC in the NiCHE audio archive.
Also, this month we feature an interview with Jonathan Peyton, a Ph.D. candidate in the Department of Geography at UBC who is studying the history of resource conflict in the Stikine Plateau region of northern British Columbia.
