Call for Papers
For a special issue of Scientia Canadensis on Environment and Technology
Environment and technology are broad rubrics, and historians have been investigating their intersection for some time now. North American envirotech scholars have examined, among others, such subjects as hydroelectric mega-projects, urban sanitation, mining, wildlife management, fisheries science, and agricultural biotechnology. This work has sharpened our understanding of how environments and technologies shape each other, and of the societies and polities that produce them.
To further advance envirotech discussion, co-editors Daniel Macfarlane and William Knight invite contributions for a special issue of Scientia Canadensis. To be published in 2018, this special issue seeks to further explore envirotech and push it in new directions. Scientia Canadensis is generally focused on Canadian history, but the editors welcome contributions that broaden the scope to North America, and especially invite articles that consider envirotech in transnational contexts.
Authors are invited to submit abstracts by June 14, 2017, with final articles due December 14, 2017. Article length is 8,000 to 10,000 words. Other types of contributions are welcome, including review essays, roundtables, image galleries or research notes. Scientia Canadensis is the journal of the Canadian Science and Technology Historical Association and publishes twice a year. A peer-reviewed digital journal, Scientia Canadensis is published by the Erudit publishing consortium. https://www.erudit.org/en/journals/scientia/
Abstracts due: June 14, 2017
Articles due: December 14, 2017
