The Otter~La Loutre is pleased to announce that it is accepting book reviews for the monthly column on Canadian environmental history. The Otter~La Loutre functions under the Network in Canadian History and Environment (NiCHE). NiCHE is a confederation of researchers and educators who work at the intersection of nature and history, seeking to provide that context. NiCHE helps make that work accessible to fellow researchers, policy makers and the Canadian public.
We invite book reviewers at any stage in their academic and professional careers (public historians, graduate students, Associate Professors, etc). Book reviews must be 750-1,200 words in length. In addition to having the opportunity to be published in a reputable and recognized academic blog, all reviewers will receive a complementary copy of the selected book prior to writing the review. All deadlines will be established after a reviewer is paired with his or her chosen book.
