Niche Canada: The Syllabus Project

Niche Canada: The Syllabus Project. “Has anyone else noticed how often environmental history syllabi largely omit women and scholars of colour? A colleague’s initial Twitter query about good sources for an environmental syllabus was followed by dozens of excellent suggestions—but none of those suggested sources were written by women and few were by scholars of colour. Dolly Jørgensen commented on this lack of diversity, and a lively Twitter discussion ensued about the structural reasons for underrepresentation. A discussion on the Women’s Environmental History Network (WEHN) email list occurred simultaneously, while the #WomenAlsoKnowHistory hashtag and website were in development.”
