Doing Environmental History

Spring 2019, Tues/Thurs, 1:30-2:50
History 200B, 5 units
Instructors: Jake Warga, Richard White


This will be a hands-on course that will emphasize how to do environmental history. It will be multidisciplinary, but will emphasize the different formats — photography, film, podcasts, digital representations, and writing — in which the history can be analyzed and presented. This course forms part of the “Doing History” series: rigorous undergraduate colloquia that introduce the practice of history within a particular field or thematic area.
