Joseph Nereo Giacomelli
Assistant Professor of Environmental History at Duke Kunshan University

My research examines how environmental and scientific knowledge is created, contested, and sometimes transformed into actions that shape people's lives. I am especially interested in climate history, environmental history, and the history of science. My book, Uncertain Climes: Debating Climate Change in Gilded-Age America,  will be published by the University of Chicago Press in early 2023. Prior to joining DKU, I was a lecturer in the Writing Program at NYU Shanghai.
