Join us for a virtual book launch!
Tune in Friday, April 14th at 2pm EDT.
The new collection, Eighteenth-Century Environmental Humanities, features a number of Canadian authors, and substantial Canadian (or Canadian-adjacent) content. There are two (two!) essays about Prince Edward Island, believe it or not, as well as essays on the eighteenth century and climate change, the blue humanities (my favourite), indigeneity and decolonization, and green utopias. Each chapter also reflects on pedagogical techniques and concerns, asking: How do we teach the eighteenth century through an environmental lens?
The collection was edited by Jeremy Chow, assistant professor of English at Bucknell University. Several contributors will join the conversation, hosted by Suzanne Guiod of Bucknell University Press and moderated by Miriam Wallace (New College of Florida) and Mona Narain (Texas Christian University), series co-editors, Transits: Literature, Thought & Culture, 1650-1850.
