2013 (English)In: Historisk Tidsskrift, ISSN 0018-263X, E-ISSN 1504-2944, Vol. 92, no 1, 9-34 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
This article discusses recent developments in Nordic environmental history scholarship in light of the concept of the Anthropocene. Taking nature and culture as entangled with each other, the article explores questions of definitions, disciplinary knowledge and the need for interdisciplinarity, and the problem of national, spatial and temporal boundaries in environmental history. Both natural spaces and the scientific knowledge we have about nature need to be historicized. The article concludes with a look to the future of Nordic environmental history.
