Gregory T. Cushman

Associate professor in the Department of History and the Environmental Studies Program at the University of Kansas. His book Guano and the Opening of the Pacific World (Cambridge University Press, 2013), whose translation into Spanish is presented here, has won awards from the Society for the History of American Agriculture (ASH), the Southern History Association (SHA), the European Society for Environmental History (ESEH) and the American History Association (AHA). His research extends to topics in the history of science and technology, climate and indigenous peoples. His approach to Latin American historiography is trans-historic and trans-regional, particularly focused on the experience of the Andean world. Currently, he works on a new project on the history of human relations with the mineral kingdom and its contribution to the inauguration of a new geological era, the Anthropocene.
