Welcome

Yale Environmental History promotes research and teaching at Yale on the complex historical relationship between people and the environment.   Yale’s offerings benefit from a distinctive global scope, with historians specializing in aspects of African, Asian, European, Latin American, Middle Eastern, and United States environmental history. 

Yale Environmental History will host its recurring conference“New Perspectives in Environmental History,” on Saturday, April 14, 2018. The Call for Papers is now available on the conference website

Several years ago, Yale faculty launched a new Climate and History Initiative to facilitate interdisciplinary dialogue on the relationship between climate and the historical evolution of societies, institutions, and economies. Yale will host a faculty workshop on climate history in October 2017.
