Water pollution in the Dutch Peat Colonies of Groningen, 1850-1980
New episode of the Exploring Environmental History Podcast

This podcast episode explores the history most serious episode of water pollution ever experienced in the Netherlands and why it took almost 150 years to clean this mess up. The history of the water pollution in the Dutch Peat colonies (Veenkoloniën) shows that industrial activity and a clean environment are not necessarily mutually exclusive.

A new book has just been published exploring the methodological challenges of nature-culture and environmental history research. I am very happy to have contributed a chapter on digital online communication in environmental history co-authored with +Sean Kheraj. The article suggests that the development of the field is owed in part to the coincidental rise of the World Wide Web during the past 25 years.

You can download the chapter on online communication in environmental history from the Environmental History Resources website: https://www.eh-resources.org/wp-content/uploads/2015/05/Methodological-Challenges-in-Nature-Culture-and-Environmental-History-Research-1st-Chap-18.pdf?x74858

Methodological Challenges in Nature-Culture and Environmental History Research is published by Routledge and information, including a table of contents, can be found on the publisher’s website: https://www.routledge.com/Methodological-Challenges-in-Nature-Culture-and-Environmental-History-Research/Thorpe-Rutherford-Sandberg/p/book/9781138956032
