Author Michael Egan, associate professor of history at McMaster University, will give a lecture titled “The History of Now: Decoding Environmental Sustainability” on Wednesday, April 18, at 4 p.m. in the Kirner-Johnson Bradford Auditorium. The lecture is a part of the Levitt Center Speaker Series on Sustainability and is free and open to the public.

 

Egan’s research is on the history of environmental thought and the developing relationship between science and technology and the environment. He is the author of Barry Commoner and the Science of Survival: The Remaking of American Environmentalism and co-editor of Natural Protest: Essays on the History of American Environmentalism.

 

Egan is currently doing research for two books. One is an exploration of the history of environmental sustainability and the other examines the history of regulated mercury pollution since World War II. He is also editor of the new MIT Press book series, History for a Sustainable Future.


An avid cyclist, Egan is at work on a collection of essays on the sport, politics and culture of bicycle travel.
