I teach Canadian environmental & climate history in the History department at Western University.
I was the founding director of NiCHE: Network in Canadian History & Environment - niche_canada.org - and have written widely on Canadians' past relations with nature. I have also written & edited textbooks on Canadian history & on environmental history methodology. My latest book, The Miramichi Fire: A History - https://www.mqup.ca/miramichi-fire--the-products-9780228001485.php - has been published in summer 2020.
