It is one of the most polluted and one of the most protected bodies of water in Europe. This is the irony of the Baltic Sea in the twentieth century and the subject of a multidisciplinary environmental history research project led by Professor Simo Laakkonnen.
Last week, Professor Laakkonen spoke about this fascinating project at York University. His lecture outlined the project and made a compelling case for a broad multidisciplinary approach to the study of the history of large bioregions that span numerous national boundaries.
