The history of development is, by now, a well-established field of research. In recent years, historians in the field of international, colonial, and global history have studied development thinking, development practices, and development conflicts across the globe.
What is missing from most of those histories is the environment. Given the massive effects many of the twentieth-century development projects – from irrigation to industrialization, from land reform to transport infrastructures – have had on the natural environment, and the dependence of economic growth on the existence of natural resources, this is a conceptual and historiographical problem. Hence, the time seems ripe to incorporate the environmental angle more fully into the investigation of the history of development. This is what the research seminar aims to do. It provides participants with an overview of the state of the art in the history of development and in environmental history, and it looks at new approaches that try to bridge the gap between the two fields.
