We are delighted to introduce a new section of Environment and History, 'Snapshots', which focuses directly on the environmental challenges of the twenty-first century and looks to historical perspectives to inform a more sustainable world.

Topics we would like to address in 2022 include:

   - Species extinction
   - Human health and the environment
   - Energy and petrofutures
   - Climate crisis, displacement and migration

We aspire to extend these pieces out of the canonical echo-chamber by encouraging submissions from early career researchers and those in cognate disciplines, even outside academia entirely; as well as by focusing on communities that might tend to be marginalised, in terms of gender, race or other factors.

Texts should be up to 2,000 words (some of which may be replaced by images). They will be published on a free to read basis. Please send you comments, ideas, or your pitch (title, abstract and short biography) to Karen Jones, Environment and History Editor:
