The History of Energy and the Environment

The History Project, in cooperation with the Joint Center for History and Economics and the Global History of Energy Project, held its fourth conference on October 22-23, 2015 at Harvard University. The conference was concerned with the history of energy and of the environment in any period or region, and from a variety of disciplinary perspectives, including social, cultural, economic, intellectual and environmental history, economics, law, urban studies and the history of science and technology. The History Project is supported by the Institute for New Economic Thinking, with the object of encouraging a new generation of historians of the economy and economic life. The History of the Energy and the Environment conference received generous support from the Harvard University Center for the Environment.
