As climate change becomes an increasingly important part of public discourse, the relationship between time in nature and history is changing. Nature can no longer be considered a slow and immobile background to human history, and the future can no longer be viewed as open and detached from the past. Times of History, Times of Nature engages with this historical shift in temporal sensibilities through a combination of detailed case studies and synthesizing efforts. Focusing on the history of knowledge, media theory, and environmental humanities, this volume explores the rich and nuanced notions of time and temporality that have emerged in response to climate change.

Staffan Bergwik is Professor at the Department for Culture and Aesthetics, Stockholm University, Sweden. Recent international publications include the co-edited volume Domesticity in the Making of Modern Science (Palgrave MacMillan, 2015), and journal articles in Isis and Science in Context.
