EIHS Workshop: Environmental Approaches to Colonial and Indigenous History

This panel will explore how human interactions with the environment informed power relations between colonizers and indigenous peoples across three continents in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. What roles did indigenous people play in the development of colonial environmental networks? How did colonial discourses about the environment inform indigenous strategies for self-determination?

Kristen Connor (PhD Student, Anthropology and History, University of Michigan)
Kathleen Whitely (PhD Student, American Culture, University of Michigan)Matthew Woodbury (PhD Candidate, History, University of Michigan)
Sophie Hunt (moderator; Postdoctoral Fellow, Eisenberg Institute for Historical Studies, University of Michigan)
