HIST 720 - History of Environment and Technology

This seminar introduces graduate students to environmental history and the history of technology, with an emphasis on their overlap. Environmental historians study the role of nature in the human past. Historians of technology examine the role of tools in history. This course emphasizes the synthesis of ideas from both fields to help us understand environmental, technological, and social change. Students read, discuss, and write about classic and new works of scholarship. (IR)
