Session Information

Description: What can the environmental humanities gain from an expansive historical scope, and how can nineteenth-century studies work to confront contemporary ecological crisis? This session addresses how the ecological crisis of the nineteenth century is the ecological crisis of today, how it challenges us to think historically as well as transhistorically, and how nineteenth-century studies matter in critical efforts to make sense of our ecological moment.
