Perrin Selcer

Associate Professor

Perrin Selcer works at the intersections of environmental history, history of the human sciences, science and technology studies, and international relations. His first major research project showed how experts affiliated with UN agencies made the global human environment a central concern of the international community. His current research explores how knowledge and narratives about the origins of the Holocene informs contemporary anxieties about and responses to global environmental crisis. His research has been supported by the Social Science Research Council and the National Science Foundation.
