Environnement et maladie (500-1800)

Edited Volume on Environment and Disease in the Pre-Modern Era

Call for papers

Some of you may already be aware of a new series aimed at upper year undergraduates and postgraduates that Routledge is putting together on environmental history in the pre-modern era (roughly defined as 500-1800). I have been asked to develop a volume that focuses specifically on pre-modern environment and disease. Given the wealth of topical expertise that exists among people on this list (and elsewhere), I foresee that this is best approached as an edited volume that includes a blend of historiographical chapters and new research in the field.

Chapters may cover narrow or wide time periods, as long as they fit within the pre-modern era (as defined above). Some volumes in the series will focus specifically on medieval or early modern, but I am more interested in producing something that crosses these historiographical boundaries. Routledge would also like the volumes to focus on Europe, BUT is open to including chapters that address other geographical regions as well.

Possible topics could include, but are certainly not limited to:
* Landscapes (Natural and/or Manmade) and Disease
* Pollution and Disease
* Urban Environments and Disease
* Climate and Disease
* Agriculture and Disease
* Environmental Disasters and Disease
* Premodern Healthscaping

For submissions, please send an abstract of 300 to 500 words that details your proposed chapter in terms of its theme and topic, argument, primary sources (if applicable), historiographical significance, and how it might appeal/be useful to undergraduate/graduate students. Please also send a 1-page CV.

Deadline for submissions: April 16, 2017

Invitations to contribute will be extended by the summer.

If you have any questions and/or are interested in contributing to this peer-reviewed volume, please contact me off list at , using the subject line CFP Environment and Disease
