Recent years have seen a remarkable fluorescence of environmental history scholarship on East Asia, and this panel discussion will explore that scholarship with three recent authors in the field, all of whose books have appeared in the Weyerhaeuser Environmental Books series published by the University of Washington Press:
Jakobina Arch, Whitman College – author of Bringing Whales Ashore: Oceans and the Environment in Early Modern Japan (2018)
Ian M. Miller, St. John’s University – author of Fir and Empire: The Transformation of Forests in Early Modern China (2020)
David Fedman, UC Irvine – author of Seeds of Control: Japan’s Empire of Forestry in Colonial Korea (2020)
The panel will be moderated by Paul S. Sutter from the University of Colorado Boulder, who is the series editor of Weyerhaeuser Environmental Books.
This event is being sponsored by the Center for Asian Studies at the University of Colorado Boulder, and it will be featured as part of “Environmental History Week,” an international celebration of environmental history, organized by environmental historians of all stripes to foster scholarly collaboration, academic research, teaching and public awareness of environmental history and pulled together by the American Society for Environmental History.
