Bringing STS into Environmental History

Research project -

This collaborative project brought together leading researchers in environmental history and science and technology studies (STS) to examine how insights from science and technology studies might help inform historical analyses of humanity’s interactions with nonhuman nature. The international workshop’s central mission was to focus on the methodological, theoretical, and conceptual overlap between science and technology studies and environmental history, embracing both the tensions and affinities between the fields.
