JHES-Journal for the History of Environment and Society is an open access journal that welcomes submissions on articles concerning Environmental History. JHES is published in collaboration with Brepols Publishers and can be obtained both online and in print. 

Vol 5 (2020): COVID 19 & Environmental History


The Journal for the History of Environment and Society (JHES) is an independent journal with a double-blind reviewing policy.

In its approach to environmental history JHES privileges comparative approaches as well as societal contextualisation. By looking at well-defined historical configurations of human actors and natural “actants”, bound together by social, economic and power relations, and interacting through technologies, institutions, perceptions and representations, we hope to foster our understanding of environmental history.

The Journal is also available in golden open access at Brepols Publishers Online.

Correspondence and articles for review should be sent to Tim Soens (tim.soens@uantwerpen.be).
