Virtual Edition on Climate History

This virtual issue of Environmental History showcases some of the excellent work historians, geographers, and other specialists in the humanities and social sciences are doing on climate. Separately and together, the articles make a compelling case for asking historians to the table when the main goal is figuring out humanity’s role in climate change. As with all our virtual editions, we hope they will be useful guides for scholars and students new to the subject and for instructors who are looking for ready-to-use readings for courses.
