\nThe French Wars of Religion and the Environment
\nThe human casualties of four decades of intermittent civil and confessional conflict (1562-1598) were, for the time, widely witnessed. Over- and under-reported, lamented, celebrated, memorialized, polemicized, martyrized and satirized, they were afforded an unprecedented spate of early modern media attention. But what awareness of the accompanying environmental degradation (if any) and human responsibility for doing something about it (again, if any) were born of these destructive wars? The articulation of a history of modern eco-consciousness – the "greening" of the past, we might say – has become a serious field of inquiry. This talk and this conference invite investigation of potential French 16th century's contributions to that history.
