Nature | History | Society

UBC - Series Logos - Nature History Society Series Logo

Series editor: Graeme Wynn

Nature | History | Society is a series devoted to the publication of high-quality scholarship in environmental history and allied fields. Its broad compass is signaled by its title: "Nature" because it takes the natural world seriously; "History" because it aims to foster work that has temporal depth; and "Society" because its essential concern is with the interface between nature and society. The series is avowedly interdisciplinary and features the work of anthropologists, ecologists, historians, geographers, literary scholars, political scientists, sociologists, and others whose interests resonate with its mandate. It offers a timely outlet for lively, innovative, and well-written work on the interactions of people and nature through time in North America.
