Episode 72: What’s Next for Canadian Environmental History?
In 2011, the Network in Canadian History and Environment and the Wilson Institute for Canadian History at McMaster University hosted a workshop in Burlington, Ontario called “EH Plus: Writing the Next Chapter of Canadian Environmental History.” Participants wrote and shared short papers outlining potential directions for the development of the field of Canadian environmental history.
On this episode of the podcast, we speak with some Canadian environmental historians about how they see the future of the field today. We look back at the conference ten years ago and reflect on past predictions and make a few of our own.
This panel was streamed to a live audience in April 2021 as part of Environmental History Week organized by the American Society for Environmental History. We were joined by Heather Green from Saint Mary’s University, Alan MacEachern from Western University, and Shannon Stunden Bower from University of Alberta.
