Georgina Endfield

Professor of Environmental History, University of Liverpool

Georgina Endfield’s research focuses on environmental and climate history and historical climatology. Endfield’s expertise is in the use of historical records for the reconstruction of climate variability and environmental change and she draws on a breadth of largely unpublished archival sources and oral history approaches to investigate: the histories of climate variability in a variety of spatial and temporal contexts in colonial Mexico; to explore the timing, impacts of and responses to extreme weather events across the UK (past 400 years); and to investigate historical climate variability, and associated socio economic implications in southern Africa (nineteenth and early twentieth century).
