The Princeton University Climate Change and History Research Initiative is delighted to announce the launch of a new series in collaboration with Oxford University Press! Entitled: Interdisciplinary Approaches to premodern societies and environments, the series aims at a global historical and geographical coverage of the complex relationships between society and environment for the pre-modern world (from prehistory up to the eighteenth century). It will embrace single- and multi-author volumes addressed to both humanities and social science as well as natural scientific readerships. The series will tackle a wide range of subjects that touch upon the interactions between pre-modern societies and their environments. It aims to promote a nuanced and balanced collaborative approach to research into the complex interrelationships between pre-modern human societies and their environment, including climate, disasters, and disease landscapes, aimed at both a specialist as well as a wider academic and non-academic readership in order to enhance understanding of historical human-environment interaction. The first volumes will appear early in 2021.
