I’m excited to say we’ll be taking copies of the special environmental history issue of the Register with us to the American Society of Environmental History annual meeting in Chicago next year. I organized a panel on “Coal, Cultivation, and Contamination: Engaging New Audiences through Southern Environmental History” that features our authors and aims to foster a discussion on how academics can effectively taken their findings off the printed page and out of conference meetings (ironic, right?) and into our classrooms and our communities. Some of my students have been guinea pigs, helping me tinker with ways to make agricultural history feel relevant. One early favorite: local sightseeing excursions.
