New Approaches to Political Ecology (Lightning Style Roundtable)
This lightning style roundtable explores new scholarship in environmental history using the framework of political ecology. It brings together five advanced graduate students whose research spans a wide geographical and temporal scope. From forest management in the People’s Republic of China to human and plant epidemics in the British Empire, each panelist will address how their research engages with political ecology, how their approach fits within and pushes forward the historiography of the field, as well as the benefits and challenges of using political ecology as a framework. Dr. Mary Draper, Midwestern State University, will serve as commentator on the panel.
This event is part of Environmental History Week, organized by the American Society for Environmental History.
