Sustaining the Nation: Environmental Reform and the Emergence of Modern America

This project is a major reinterpretation of the formative period of American environmentalism, roughly from 1865 to 1915. In addition to changing the ways scholars understand the history of environmental reform, this project will shed new light on the political, social, and cultural history of the United States in the Gilded Age and Progressive Era. This project seeks to demonstrate that the insights of enviromental history are critical in understanding the emergence of modern America.
