A network of interdisciplinary scholars studying past climate change
A new episode of the Exploring Environmental History podcast examines aspects of historical climatology. The guest on this episode of the Podcast is Dagomar Degroot, a PhD Candidate in environmental history at York University in Toronto, Canada. His research explores the issue of how the changing climate of the Little Ice Age influenced the cultural, military and economic histories of the Dutch Republic during the early modern period. Dagomar discusses some of the pitfalls of this type of research, the sources available to historian’s researching climate and the relevance to present day debates about global warming and climate change.
