The Climate of Union: Scotland, Hearing and the North Seas World, 1660-1707

October 22, 4:00pm - 5:30pm
Mānoa Campus, Via Zoom

Dr. Patrick Klinger, Visiting Scholar in the UH Manoa History Department, will discuss how climatic instability and environmental change during the last third of the Global Little Ice Age fundamentally affected economic and commercial activities, political thought, and government policy and decision-making during the last half of the seventeenth century and the first decade of the eighteenth. His main focus will be on the British Isles and North Sea, including England, Scotland and Holland.

Please join us for this interdisciplinary approach to understanding how much environmental history can reveal and the questions it can help raise. Free lecture and discussion via Zoom. Please email Professor Hoffenberg at for the Zoom invitation.
