In this episode, Erin Isaac explains to hosts Brittany and Laura how race and climate were linked by 18th-century beliefs about the body. They also discuss how migrants who came to Nova Scotia in the 1780s (along with the colony’s existing populations!) contended with an unusually hostile climate following a volcanic eruption in 1783, and how this environmental history impacted different communities’ lived experiences.
