Entangled Histories and the Environment?

Socio-Environmental Transformations in the Caribbean, 1492-1800

This long essay's goal is to outline how environmental factors can be systematically included into the perspective of entangled histories. So far, the question how access to natural resources, energy, land-use systems and agricultural practices have influenced unequal relationships of power have largely remained confined to the field of environmental history but do not belong to the established perspective on histories of empire and colonialism. The essay combines the two conceptual perspectives of "environment-in-entanglement" and "practices of comparing" in order to broaden the approach to how (post-)colonial entanglements are researched historically.
