Subject Area
Carson Fellow Timothy LeCain erforscht die Gemeinsamkeiten der Kupferminen in Anaconda, Montana und Ashio, Japan. Beide haben die Umwelt verändert und nicht nur die Landschaften, sondern auch die Tierwelt negativ beeinflusst. Zusammen mit einem Kollegen versucht er, Ansätze zu finden, um die Umwelt vor den Verwüstungen durch den Minenbetrieb zu schützen. Carson Fellow Timothy LeCain erforscht die Geschichte der Umwelt und der Technologie des Bergbaus im 20. Jahrhundert.
Initially, when Carson Fellow Timothy LeCain and his colleague began comparing the environmental history of copper mining in the US and Japan, they expected to find different trajectories from each site. However, their research shows an extraordinary convergence—despite the considerable cultural differences between the two mining sites. Ultimately, the values of modernity swept aside other priorities in each country, resulting in the destruction of the physical environment and the poisoning of the air, plants, and important animal species. LeCain’s research findings hold significant implications for the discussion of social constructionism, as industry overwhelms cultures within the global systems. Prof. Dr. LeCain is an associate professor of history at Montana State University.
