Teaching and Studying Environmental History in China
Peter Perdue, Yale University
Peter Perdue will discuss pertinent themes of research for Chinese scholars of environmental history. Interest in environmental history is growing in China today, and it is becoming recognized as one of the most exciting new fields of historical research. Chinese scholars approach this field from a particular point of view, influenced by traditional historical geography. They are also eager for contact with foreign scholars. Professor Perdue will discuss the connections between academic historical study and current environmental activism in China.
