To listen to this archive edition with Gillen D’Arcy Wood, about his book, TAMBORA: THE ERUPTION THAT CHANGED THE WORLD, originally broadcast on June 10, 2015, click on this link.

 "Out of sight and out of mind, Tambora was the volcanic, stealth bomber of the early 19th century.  Be it the retching cholera victim in Calcutta, the starving peasant children of Yunnan, China or County Tyrone, Ireland, the hopeful explorer of a North West Passage through the Arctic Ocean, or the bankrupt land speculator in Baltimore, the world's residents were oblivious to the volcanic drivings of their fate."  200 years ago this Spring, Tambora erupted cataclismacly with extremely dire global consequences.  What can we learn from this event as we face our own challenges in a rapidly changing climate?

Gillen D'Arcy Wood  is a professor of English and an environmental historian at the U. of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, where he directs The Sustainability Studies Initiative in the Humanities. Gillen D'Arcy Wood has written extensively on the cultural and environmental history of the 19th century, and is the author of The Shock of the Real: Romanticism and Visual Culture, 1760-1860 (Palgrave, 2001), Romanticism and Music Culture in Britain, 1770-1840: Virtue and Virtuosity (Cambridge UP, 2010), an historical novel, Hosack's Folly (Other Press, 2005), and most recently, the book we'll be discussing this morning, Tambora: The Eruption That Changed the World (Princeton, NJ: Princeton University Press, 2014).
