Later this month, Nature’s Past will be returning for a new season of episodes. This year, however, we’re doing something different. With support from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada, the Network in Canadian History and Environment, and Canada’s History magazine, we will be producing a six-part special series called “Histories of Canadian Environmental Issues.” Through this series we will examine historical perspectives on a number of different pertinent environmental issues for Canadian, including Climate Change, Aboriginal Peoples, Health, and Environment, The Canadian Environmental Movement, Fisheries, Food and Agriculture and Tar Sands

On each episode, we will speak with historians who explore different aspects of these issues in past contexts. We will feature round-table discussions, interviews, and panels to cover each of these complicated and important environmental issues.

The series will also feature two new co-host assistant producers, Stacy Nation-Knapper and Andrew Watson.
