Floating Coast: An Environmental History of the Bering Strait

With Bathsheba Demuth and Robert Macfarlane

Contributor Conversation
July 15, 2020

Emergence contributors Bathsheba Demuth, an environmental historian at Brown University, and Robert Macfarlane will join us to discuss Bathsheba’s recent book, Floating Coast: An Environmental History of the Bering Strait. In the book, she invents a new form of historical narrative as she tracks the dynamics of the modernist, ecological makeover of the Bering Strait and explores the relationship between capitalism, communism, and Arctic ecology since the dawn of the industrial age. This live conversation will include a moderated Q&A with the audience.
