Pollution, Toxicity and Reparative Environmental Histories: A discussion
There are over 50 presentations slated for this year’s ASEH conference dealing with themes related to pollution, toxicity, and contaminants. Clearly, scholarly and public interest in questions of “the arts of living on a damaged planet” is high, as is interest in historical, theoretical, and practical approaches to repair, remediation, and restoration. In conjunction with the Northern Exposures project workshop and the Symposium on Place-based Reparative Environmental Histories, we invite ASEH participants to join members of the Northern Exposures project team as we reflect on emerging directions in environmental histories and geographies of waste, discards, and toxicity, as well as their reparative and justice dimensions. Through this interactive session, we hope to spark discussion, reflection, and potential collaboration amongst the many presenters and participants with interests in these questions, before joining us for the conference opening reception. Space in this pre-conference event is limited.
