Energy and Environment

The history of human society is the history of its manipulation of the environment; the history of  energy use and environmental manipulation in the modern world is the history of fundamental, irreversible, and potentially catastrophic change. It is also the history of international diplomacy about everything from oil to fishes. Beyond the History Department, the Center for Environmental Studies offers contact to departments and faculty across the university. The History faculty in this research cluster include:

Douglas G. Brinkley

Randal L. Hall
