The journal Australian Historical Studies (AHS) recently published its second Virtual Special Issue, ‘Rural History & Environmental History’.
This online only issue draws upon decades of discussion and debate in the journal about the relationships between peoples and their environments since 1788. It includes an excellent introductory essay by Ruth Morgan which outlines the issues that have concerned historians of non-metropolitan Australia. It features a selection of sixteen previously published AHS papers that examine the topic. All articles are free to access until 31 December 2017.
