Last spring at the annual meeting of the Canadian Historical Association, NiCHE sponsored a big round-table panel called, “The Past and Future of Canadian Environmental History.” Seven environmental historians from across the country sat down to discuss a number of key questions concerning the development of the field of Canadian environmental history.

The panelists covered a number of different issues, including the concept of the anthropocene, the status of women in the field, trends and new directions in research, and the concerns of new scholars.
