“History in the Time of Climate Crisis” invites reflecting on what it means to do and teach environmental history during our ongoing moment of climate crisis. From forest fires to melting ice caps; from prolonged drought to mass extinction, to forms of resource scarcity driving human migration, climate change is altering the contours of existence on our planet. How do we, as historians, respond to this crisis in our teaching and research? How is the inescapability of the climate crisis prompting new modes of public engagement, new modes of pedagogy, new approaches to research?
Part of the University of Toronto’s “History in the Time of…” roundtable series, this event builds brings an environmental focus to questions of social justice, public engagement, and the ethics of teaching and research in a moment of extreme and widespread climate crisis for much of life on Earth. This event will be recorded and archived online.
