A network of interdisciplinary scholars studying past climate change
“We are pleased to announce the launch of our special podcsat series, “Nature’s Past: Histories of Canadian Environmental Issues” and the first part of this series, which looks at global warming. With support from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada, the Network in Canadian History and Environment, the Robarts Centre for Canadian Studies, and Canada’s History magazine, we will be producing a six-part special series. Through this series we will examine historical perspectives on a number of different pertinent environmental issues for Canadians.
On this episode of the podcast, we hold a round-table discussion about the role of climate in Canadian and global history with James Daschuk, Joshua MacFadyen, and Dagomar Degroot. We also speak with Ross Coen, author of the recently published book Breaking Ice for Arctic Oil: The Epic Voyage of the SS Manhattan through the Northwest Passage.
