“Middle East Environmental Histories” Series Set to Begin

March 17, 2023

Middle East Environmental Histories” seeks to publish the best work on the environmental history of the Middle East from late antiquity to the present. It spotlights the ways in which peoples in the Middle East engaged with their environments to produce ideas, states, cultures, literatures, families, and societies. It will place the region in a more global context while keeping an interdisciplinary focus on the particularities of its environment—its historic role at the crossroads of trade between the Mediterranean and Asia, its cultural and religious diversity, Islam, and modern oil industries.
