Inhaltsangabe: This book argues that the unique environments of the North have been born of the relationship between humans and nature. Approaching the topic through the lens of environmental history, the contributors examine a broad range of geographies, including those of Iceland and other islands in the Northern Atlantic, Sweden, Finland, Russia, the Pacific Northwest, and Canada, over a time span ranging from CE 800 to 2000. Northscapes is bound together by the intellectual project of investigating the North both as an imagined and mythologized space and as an environment shaped by human technology. Contributors: Lisa Cooke, Marionne Cronin, Bathsheba Demuth, Jane Harrison, Ryan Tucker Jones, Finn Arne Jorgensen, Arni Daniel Juliusson, Unnur Birna Karlsdottir, Jan Kunnas, Simo Laakkonen, Julia Lajus, Seija A. Niemi, Helga Ogmundardottir, and Anna Gudrun Thorhallsdottir.
Über den Autor: Dolly Jorgensen is an environmental historian in the Department of Ecology and Environmental Science at Umea University in Sweden. Sverker Sorlin is a professor of environmental history at the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH) in Sweden.
