American Environmental History

Dublin Core

Description

Environmental History is about looking at the past as if the environment matters. American History is about looking at the past of not only the United States, but of both the American continents. This wider view is especially
important when we realize that people occupied the Americas for over 15,000 years before Europeans arrived and
that when the came to the Americas, Europeans focused their interest for centuries on areas that are not part of
the current United States. As we get closer to the present, we will focus more on the U.S., but we’ll try to remind
ourselves from time to time that we’re not the only nation in the Americas by considering how other nations have
experienced and affected the environment.
