Economy, Business and Environment in History


The human relationship with the material world, animals and natural phenomena is
often only a side-show of the narratives of economic and business history.
Economic and business historians have been inclined to describe nature and its
resources as valuable inputs into our economies or raw materials for the markets
of the industrialized world. In addition, major events and turning points in
economic history have usually been related to financial, monetary, political and
technological changes and not so much to ecological transformations or hazards.
These approaches have added to our knowledge, for instance, of international
trade and globalization in the long term, but have also overshadowed intricate
human–nature and human–animal relationships and their cultural, societal and
ecological ramifications. Within that narrative, nature and non-human agents
have often been regarded as the silent objects of human actions without
considering how humans will end up the objects of their own action and how that
affects their mindsets, patterns, practises and recollection of the past.

This Special Issue of the Scandinavian Economic History Review invites papers
