This past week I had the opportunity to present at the Annual Conference of the American Society for Environmental History. My panel, "Transnational Environmentalism and the Creation of a Canadian Movement," featured four papers. The papers, in order of presentation, were:
- Henry Trim, University of British Columbia, "Expert Advice: Environmentalism and Canadian Energy Policy"
- Ryan O'Connor, Trent University, "Regional Fissures and International Interests: Building Support for the Canadian Coalition on Acid Rain, 1981-1990"
- Mark Leeming, Dalhousie University, "Friends in Far Places: Cape Breton's Herbicide Trial"
- Jonathan Clapperton, University of Saskatchewan, "Reconsidering Indigenous Environmentalism: Culture, Nature, and Ecological Stewardship on the Northwest Pacific Coast"
I'd like to thank all those who came out to hear our panel. A special thanks goes out to Michael Egan for expertly chairing the panel and for sharing his keen insights.
