This special issue of JMEMS will explore how microhistory has evolved as it has contested the usefulness of grand narratives for understanding historical problems where life was lived in fragmented, small-scale societies.   Frontiers of the Imagination: Women, History, and Nature Irene Diamond and Lisa Kuppler I think it is time to put ecology back into feminism, to feel as our own the plight of the earth and shout it. Otherwise feminism and ecology will continue to win only partial gains, buying time.
