I’ve spent the past month or so putting the finishing touches on two pieces of writing that I’ve been hanging out with for a while now. One is a short invited piece on the history of “wildlife,” as a word and a concept, for Environmental History. The article is now press and should be in print by July as part of a forum on wildlife history. The other is an essay on the introduction of wildlife radiotracking to Yellowstone National Park and Nepal’s Chitwan National Park in the 1960s and 1970s, which should appear in an edited volume on “national parks in transnational perspective” by the end of the year. More details when the pieces actually come out, but at the moment it just feels good to know they’re on their way.
