This workshop will involve discussion of two precirculated papers:
**"Political Hermaphrodites": Gender and Environmental Reform in Progressive America
**The Peasant in the City: Immigration and Environmental Reform in the Progressive Era
Both papers are drawn from Professor Rome's work-in-progress: NEW CITY, NEW COUNTRY: ENVIRONMENTAL REFORM AND THE EMERGENCE OF MODERN AMERICA. Rome is a former editor of ENVIRONMENTAL HISTORY (2002-05) and author of THE BULLDOZER IN THE COUNTRYSIDE: SUBURBAN SPRAWL AND THE RISE OF AMERICAN ENVIRONMENTALISM (Cambridge, 2001).
For access to the precirculated papers, please email Matt Lassiter (firstname.lastname@example.org).
