Emily Wakild

Emily Wakild recently gave two talks in her role as visiting professor at the Institute of History at the Pontifical Catholic University of Chile. Wakild is a founding member of the Institute of History’s group for the study of the environment and society, which had an inaugural colloquium on June 6. There is a summary of the well-attended colloquium (in Spanish) here.

Wakild also gave a presentation on July 5 for teachers about environmental history based on her new book, written with Michelle K. Berry, “A Primer for Teaching Environmental History” (Duke 2018). The talk provided strategies for course design and examples of how to integrate environmental history methods into any level of teaching.
