INTRODUCCIÓN

Desde hace tiempo, la Red Universitaria Española de Historia Ambiental (RUEDHA), dentro del Grupo HUM 952 STAND) viene desarrollando encuentros bianuales con el fin de promover un diálogo continuado con investigadores del contexto de la Península Ibérica al respecto de la agenda de trabajo de la Historia SocioAmbiental. Tras el último encuentro en Granada en el 2016, volvemos a convocar a los investigadores que desde muchas areas y campos se sienten llamados al trabajo en la relación que las sociedades humanas y la naturaleza han tenido a lo largo de la Historia. Buscamos con ello continuar con la agenda de trabajo ya existente pero abrir el espacio a la colaboración con nuevos grupos y temas de investigación emergentes por lo que las sesiones están lideradas por investigadores que desde estos campos interdisciplinares den continuidad a la investigación en el futuro.

Es el momento de retomar los diálogos y los saberes compartidos para lo que hemos creado un encuentro en el que trabajar sobres ejes que son emergentes en el campo de la historia ambiental, sin olvidar elementos que ha atravesado nuestra investigación en los dos últimos decenios.

Ante la crisis civilizadora en la que estamos inmersos, nos queda responder al desafío, encontrar respuestas a los problemas que nos acucian. Pensar en “recomunalizar” nuestras prácticas sociales nos conduce inevitablemente a una mirada amplia y prospectiva de los bienes comunes como sujetos del cambio social. A ello se dedicará la sesión coordinada por el Profesor Jose Miguel Lana Berasain (UPNA). De igual manera, los flujos de energía y materiales entre la sociedad y el medio ambiente, estudiados a través de las diferentes herramientas de la propuesta del Metabolismo Social, serán el objeto central de la sesión que coordina el profesor Juan Infante-Amate, de la Universidad Pablo de Olavide. En esta sesión se discutirán trabajos centrados en diferentes sectores socioeconómicos (metabolismos agrarios, industriales, domésticos…), abordando diferentes marcos cronológicos.

Ante la crisis ecológica global emergen las resistencias socioambientales, como espacio de creación de nuevas formas de producción frente a los impactos del sistema capitalista que deviene tanto desde el campo de la lucha en sentido estricto como de las nuevas formas de memoria del territorio. Re-Existimos ante la crisis socioambiental, Crisis que nos debe llevar a una mirada histórica a los episodios catastróficos, al impacto cobre el clima, a los riesgos ambientales. A ello se atenderá la sesión coordinada por el profesor Armando Alberola (Universidad de Alicante). Por último, en el campo de los extractivismos se desarrollará el campo de trabajo de la sesión propuesta por los profesores Luis Sánchez Vazquez (UGR) y Juan Diego Pérez Cebada (Universidad de Huelva). Minería y Medio Ambiente en constante tensión productiva requerirán una mirada atenta y profunda en la sesión propuesta.

Junto a todo ello se habilitarán espacios la la venta de libros, presentación de materiales específicos de investigación y otras actividades relacionadas con el campo de la historia ambiental (proyección de documentales, etc). En ello trabajamos…

COMMON

TERRITORIES

TOOLS VS. THE

CAPITALOCENE

 

International Conference of the RUEDHA

 

Granada, October 7-8, 2018.

 

Call for papers

 

 

The Spanish University Network for Environmental History (RUEDHA – Red Universitaria Española de Historia Ambiental), within the HUM952-STAND Research Group has been developing biannual meetings for a long time, in order to promote a continuous dialogue with researchers from the Iberian Peninsula context regarding the work agenda of the Socio-Environmental History. After the last meeting in Granada in 2016, we reconvene researchers who, from many areas and fields, feel called to work in the relationship that human societies and nature have had throughout History.

 

We seek to continue with the existing work agenda but open the space to collaboration with new groups and emerging research topics, so the sessions are led by researchers from these interdisciplinary fields to continue research in the future.

 

We encourage the following topics:

 

*RESISTANCES AND TERRITORIAL MEMORIES

 

*COMMON GOODS. LEARNINGS FROM THE PAST

 

*SOCIAL METHABOLISM AS A TOOL FORSUSTENTABILITY

 

*EXTRACTIVISMS AND MINING

 

*CLIMATE, ENVIRONMENT AND CATASTROPHE A COMPARATIVE PERSPECTIVE

 

Conference Keynote by Micheline Cariño Olvera (UABCS, Mexico)

 

 

It is time to resume the dialogues and shared knowledges, for which we have organized a meeting in which to work on axes that are emerging in the field of Environmental History, without forgetting elements that have gone through our research in the last two decades. Faced with the civilizing crisis in which we are immersed, we have to respond to the challenge, in order to find answers to the problems that afflict us. Thinking about “recommunization” of our social practices inevitably leads us to a broad and prospective view of the commons as subjects of social change. The session coordinated by Professor Jose Miguel Lana Berasain (UPNA) will be dedicated to that. Likewise, the energy and material flows between society and the environment, studied through the different tools of the Social Metabolism proposal, will be the central object of the session coordinated by Professor Juan Infante-Amate (UPO). This session will discuss works focusing on different socioeconomic sectors (agricultural, industrial, domestic metabolisms…), addressing different chronological frameworks.

 

Faced with the global ecological crisis, socio-environmental resistance emerges as a space for the creation of new forms of production vs. the impacts of the capitalist system, which arise both from the field of struggle stricto sensu and from new forms of memory of the territory. We Re-Exist against the socio-environmental crisis. Crisis that must take us to a historical look at the catastrophic episodes, the impact on the climate, the environmental risks. This will be attended in the session coordinated by Professor Armando Alberola (University of Alicante). Eventually, the field of extractivism will open the field of work of the session proposed by Professors Luis Sánchez Vazquez (UGR) and Juan Diego Pérez Cebada (University of Huelva). Mining and Environment in constant productive tension will require a careful and deep look at the proposed session.

 

PARALLEL ACTIVITIES

Alongside all this will be enabled spaces for book sales, presentation of specific research materials and other activities related to the field of Environmental History (projection of documentaries, etc.). Works in progress…

CfP – COLLOQUE INTERNATIONAL DU RUCHE. « ECRIRE L’HISTOIRE ENVIRONNEMENTALE AU XXIE SIÈCLE: SOURCES, MÉTHODES ET PRATIQUES » (Lyon, Juin 13-15, 2018)

For its 10th anniversary, le RUCHE
(French branch of the ESEH) invites all the researchers who work on the environment
to reflect on their methods and practices

 

Writing Environmental History in the 21st century:

Sources, Methods and Practices 

 

International Conference of the RUCHE

Lyon (France), June 13-15, 2018.

Call for papers : click here AAC-RUCHE-2018

 

The relationships between humans and their natural environment and other living beings; the production and treatment of waste; the mobilization and consumption of energy; industrial, agricultural, and domestic nuisances and their impact on health and the environment; the uses and management of forests, coastlines, mountains, swamps and commons; urban environments; relationships to rivers; environmentalism; natural or human-caused catastrophes; climate change; consequences of major developments, etc. The objects of environmental history are varied and so are the methods that have been developed to analyze them. In the past decade, the number of publications on environmental history in France has soared and contacts with researchers in other countries working on similar topic have multiplied.

While scholars—geographers, rural historians, etc.—had already paid attention to some of these objects in the past, environmental history has helped renew and broaden our understanding of these issues, in particular in light of the “sustainability” challenges prompted by the technical choices and economic models of development that appeared at the end of the 18th century and which intensified and spread globally in the 20th century. Faced with such incredibly complex questions, environmental historians are aware that no single discipline can pretend to ask and answer all our questions. Where the environment is concerned, trans- or interdisciplinarity is even more essential than it is for other topics of historical research. Moreover, interdisciplinarity, where the environment is concerned, does not simply entail forging connections between the human and social sciences but, more crucially, with disciplines that are even more foreign to historians, such as biology, ecology, and geology.

Take this example: is it even possible, today, to write the history of pollution—of the effluents discharged in our air, water, and soils—without trying to understand the evolution of production processes and, thus, the evolution of chemistry itself? Or without using any notion of eco-toxicology? Moreover, shouldn’t such a history of pollution enter into a dialogue with those who work on green technologies to remedy, if only partially, the damages caused by humans in the past and, in that way, contribute to weaving together the past, the present and the future? Environmental questions are fundamentally hybrid: they touch on social, economic, cultural, natural and technical issues and thus cannot be studied solely by one discipline. In order to include all these dimensions, inter and trans-disciplinarity is essential.

However, as the experience of interdisciplinary projects led within the CNRS (the French national scientific research center) has shown in the last decades, it remains difficult to produce truly interdisciplinary work. Difficulties stem from the specificity of scientific disciplines, which, for some of them, were shaped in opposition to others and which have their own vocabulary, methods, and questions. The different types of data used compound these difficulties as they usually mean scientists work on very different time scales, from a few years to thousands of years. Moreover, within each discipline, a gap (more or less wide depending on the periods under study) tends to separate scholars who work with written and oral sources and those who use “data from the ground,” whatever the method they use to analyze them. Overcoming these difficulties is a necessary step if we want to benefit from a true interdisciplinary approach to complex environmental problems.

For its tenth anniversary, the Academic Networks of Environmental Historians (Réseau universitaire de chercheurs en histoire environnementale) invites researchers from all disciplines who work on the environment to reflect on the sources, practices and methods that can help us gain greater knowledge of shared topics of interest. While this conference is initiative by the historians of RUCHE, we hope to receive papers from scholars from other disciplines and working on different periods. Proposals from all disciplines are welcome as long as they concern, one way or another, environmental history. The organizers hope that the proposals will allow for interdisciplinary discussions within each session.

The conference’s objectives are:

* Assess and discuss the main scientific innovations and projects that have recently advanced the case for interdisciplinarity in the study of environmental history. We are interested in all kinds of projects (interdisciplinary methods or objects) and in particular in the participants’ experiences, whether positive, challenging or disappointing in this domain. How were those interdisciplinary projects conceived? Do scholars manage to cross disciplinary approaches (rather than simply juxtapose them)? What do we learn from transdisciplinary research?

* Explore new research directions and unexplored topics in environmental history, conceived broadly as the analysis of the evolving interactions between human societies and their environments.

* Reflect on how we use sources (oral, written, or extracted from the earth); how different kinds of data can yield different kind of knowledge and how best to combine them. How can we ensure that historians, geographers, ecologists, etc. enter into a fruitful dialogue that could enrich their respective practices? How can we address the different scales of time, make different temporalities fit together?

* Evaluate and question the social utility of environmental history. Early on in the US, the field contributed to “public history,” a type of science aimed at creating a dialogue with public entities and responding to their needs. What about France where some projects are funded by public-private partnerships? How can we foster collaboration between science and society and more visibility for scientific research findings? Which scientific problems emerge when public actors and scientists collaborate? What are the limits to this approach?

 

We encourage interested researchers to circulate this call for papers within the networks of their own discipline.

ESEH 2017 Conference: Call for Papers

2017 Conference: Call for Papers

We encourage proposals that explore the general theme from various environmental history perspectives, such as:

  • Environment in areas of contact among states, economic systems, cultures and religions
  • Environmental history of post-socialist countries of Eastern Europe
  • Environment shared among cultures: spatial and temporal dimension
  • Environmental history of borders and borderland areas
  • Environmental history of the Mediterranean
  • Urban environmental history
  • Forest history
  • Industrial and post-industrial environmental history
  • Production, consumption and waste: commodity chains in environmental history
  • Cultural values and economic interests: retrospective environmental analyses
  • Theories and methods in environmental history

The conference covers all periods and all areas of the globe. In keeping with a cherished tradition of the field, the conference is open to scholars from all disciplines and backgrounds. We especially encourage submissions from graduate students who will be offered a special reduced fee. The conference language is English; no submissions in other languages will be accepted. All proposals will be reviewed by a scientific committee.

All proposals should be submitted through our online submission system. The online submission system will open in July 2016. The deadline for submittals is 1 October 2016.

Questions about proposals should be directed to the Programme Committee chair through the email conference@eseh.org.

*Note—due to a limited number of sessions, individual scholars can only submit in one category (paper, roundtable, or poster) though individuals can appear as chair (not commenter) of a second session. This is to ensure diversity and breadth of participation.

Proposals will be accepted in the following categories:

1. Sessions

Sessions will usually consist of three to five papers, not more than 20 minutes each. Other formats (debate panels, roundtables) are possible, but please note that all sessions will need to conclude after 120 minutes. Session proposals should include a session title, list of contributors and a chair, and individual paper titles; a session abstract of 200-300 words; three individual paper abstracts of 200-300 words. Session proposal may also include a commentator/discussant. Nevertheless, all sessions should include sufficient time for general discussion.

2. Individual papers

Contributors may also submit individual papers of max. 20 minutes, which will be combined into sessions of three to four papers in case of acceptance. However, scholars should take note that the scientific committee has a certain preference for session submissions, and that it cannot guarantee thematic coherence for the resulting sessions. Paper proposals are to consist of an abstract of 200-300 words.

3. Roundtables

Scholars can also propose 90-minute roundtables, which differ in form and goal from regular paper sessions. Roundtables are panels ranging from 3-6 people and a chair who speak to a common question or theme. Successful roundtables involve interaction between the panelists, the active involvement of the chair in shaping the conversation, and ample time for the audience to interact with the panel and pose questions

4. Posters

Poster proposals will include an abstract of 200-300 words and a one-page CV. Poster session will have a designated area for display, but a special time and venue will be given to all authors of posters to present their research in 2 minutes time per poster.

5. Experimental sessions

We welcome proposals for non-conventional sessions through which proponents wish to experimentwith creative formats. To submit a proposal for an experimental session, please provide a 300-400 word abstract, describing in details the activity. Please include in the proposal any special logistic request you might need.

In addition, conference participants are invited to submit items in two other categories: photographs and movies.

Photographs

An exhibition of photographs taken by ESEH 2017 participants will be held during the conference. All participants are invited to send max. two of their photographs in digital format (max size 10 Mb, approximately 300 dpi) encapsulating one of the main themes of the conference listed in the conference statement session. A short description of each photograph (up to 100 words) should be provided also. The organizing committee will carefully select the best photographs and a special venue will be provided for the exhibition. Please send your photos to eseh2017photo@gmail.com

Movies

All participants are invited to suggest a movie title (a documentary, a short feature, a regular TV movie, an interesting YouTube clip etc.) dealing with one or more topics of the conference, a movie they believe could be interesting to other participants and the wider audience. After selecting several titles, the organizers will contact its distributors and try to organize a “Green Movie Soirée” during the conference where a selection of movies will be displayed. We encourage film-makers to propose their movies for this event. Send suggestions to eseh2017photo@gmail.com.

The LARHRA (Rhône-Alpes Historical Research Unit), in cooperation with the CNRS (National Center for Scientific Research), the RUCHE and with the support of the European Society for Environmental History (ESEH), is pleased to announce that a four-day thematic summer school “Cities and Mountains. Environmental and Health Risks : A Socio-Historical perspective” will take place in Lyon, Yenne and Grenoble, immediately before the ESEH 8th International Conference (Versailles, 30 June – 3 July 2015).

There are three thematic clusters, around which young researchers are invited to apply: (1) Environmental and health risks in cities, (2) Environmental risks in mountains, and (3) Mountain cities and towns as specific environments with specific issues

The summer school aims to gather around 15 graduate / post-doctoral students together with junior and senior scholars. Each participant is expected to give an oral presentation of 15-20 minutes which will be discussed in thematic sessions chaired by senior scholars. The four-day seminar will also feature lectures from scholars, field trips and informal discussion among scholars and students.

At the end of the School, students will have to produce either: a scientific poster about their work to be presented at the ESEH Conference; a draft of an article for the ARCADIA project (http://www.environmentandsociety.org/arcadia); or a report about the summer school (6-10 pages).

To apply, students are required to send to Stéphane Frioux (stephane.frioux@univ-lyon2.fr) the following documents in English: (1) Curriculum vitae; (2) an abstract and outline of their doctoral thesis or other work that states the main challenges and research questions to be discussed at the summer school (500 words); (3) a letter of support from a faculty member.

There is no registration fee. All accepted participants will receive free accommodation, meals and transportation DURING the four-day seminar, but they are responsible for their own transportation to and from Lyon, France, where they should arrive on June 25 as the summer school will start on June 26, in the morning.

Application deadline: 22 March 2015. Answer will be given before April 11.

Call for papers: ESEH 2015 Panels on the Environmental History of Dictatorships

ESEH 2015 Panels on the Environmental History of Dictatorships

Dear Colleages,

submission ideas have been flowing in for the proposed panel on communism at ESEH 2015 and participants of this panel would like to organize a second panel focused on the environmental history of “other” dictatorships in Europe (or overseas).

Papers about Franco’s Spain, Mussolini’s Italy, Salazar’s Portugal and Greece under the Military Junta are warmly welcome and aimed to be compared with Eastern Europe’s communist regimes.

I believe these two planned sessions will be very stimulating.

the early beginnings: origins, pathways, entries and dispersion trails, in order to elaborate narratives on the processes and patterns, and a set of maps for different times and places;

environmental values: perceptions, attitudes and discourses, exploring technical and non-technical terminology and iconography that referred or described these species, their impacts and the related policies (at local level and upwards);

narratives of invasion: local stories of damages in economy, ecology and human health, evaluating different types of costs over time in areas particularly infested and for particular activities;

records of struggle: responses to inconvenience and losses, which analyze theory and practice in the combat against pests using repellents, traps, insecticides and biological control; international cooperation for common management measures and biosecurity policies.
