Environmental History and the American South

This series explores the critical importance of human-environmental interactions to the history and culture of the American South. Books in the series show how attention to environmental topics necessarily enriches but also interrogates our understanding of southern history and identity and how a focus on southern topics promises to reshape the broader field of environmental history.


Books in the series not only situate environmental history within the American South, broadly defined, but they also connect the region to local, national, and transnational scales of analysis. The series welcomes the work of anthropologists and geographers as well as historians and environmental writers. We also plan to republish southern environmental classics and to produce essay collections that shape the emerging field of southern environmental history.
