Critical Commentary

In October 2008, the journal Environmental History released a special issue titled "toxic bodies/toxic environments: an interdisciplinary forum" to bring together environmental historians, science studies scholars, and historians of science to reflect on "cultural models and historical assumptions that guide contemporary regulatory policy". The editors highlighr four themes: uncertainty of (toxic) knowledge, place of knowledge production, politics of environments/bodies, and historical roots of toxicological frameworks. The case studies are drawn mostly from North America.
