Last year, in an effort to foster conversation and discussion among scholars, the journal Environmental History published a special forum of short essays on wildlife histories and the legacy of Peter Matthiessen’s 1959 book Wildlife in America, edited by Peter Alagona. Eleven scholars published short articles in which they discuss the impact of Wildlife in America and future directions for environmental historians who study the history of wild animals and the idea of wildlife. On this episode of the podcast, three members of the Toronto Environmental History Network sit down to share their thoughts on this provocative collection of articles.
Also, we speak with Amanda Di Battista and Andrew Mark about their forthcoming special podcast series on environmental studies called CoHearence.
