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.

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.

Please contact organizers at  viktor.paal (at) gmail (dot) com

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.

ESEH Newsletter

Dear Friends and Colleagues, Members of the ESEH:

Only four months until the biennial ESEH conference starts in Munich. We have already registered participants from more than two dozen different countries and from every single continent, and we are convinced that the number of participants will set a new record, with a higher attendance than at the World Congress in Copenhagen.

I am writing to you today to remind you of an early bird option. ESEH members who register before 31 May 2013 will profit from a discounted registration fee (50 or 100 Euros, depending on your income level). This fee includes all meals, receptions, academic events, one excursion, entry to the exhibition hall, and much more. To register, click here.

Additionally, I am happy to report that ESEH travel grants will be available for participants hoping to attend the ESEH conference in Munich. At its meeting in March 2013, the board of the ESEH decided to dedicate 6000 euros (this amount comprises all of its currently available funds) to support travel to Munich, targeted at those who would not be able to attend the conference without external support. Conference fee waivers will also be available. The deadline for applying for fee waivers and travel support is 31 May 2013. For more information visit the website at http://www.eseh2013.org/funding-information.html

I am especially happy to report that the ESEH will offer its first Writing and Publication Workshop to its members (with preferential booking for member who are not native speakers of English). The workshop will be held immediately before the start of the conference on Wednesday 21 August 2013 from 10am–4pm at the Rachel Carson Center for Environment and Society, LMU Munich. Topics will include article writing techniques, publisher expectations, and book and grant proposal writing. ESEH secretary Dr Phia Steyn (Stirling University, UK) will serve as convener of the workshop. Mentors and presenters include Dr Dolly Jørgensen, Umeå University, Sweden; Prof David Moon, University of York, UK (Editor of the ESEH book series with Berghahn Books), Dr Sarah Johnson, (White Horse Press, publisher of the journal Environment and History), and Katie Ritson (Senior Editor, Rachel Carson Center for Environment and Society).

There will be no fees for attending the writing workshop but spaces are limited to 30 participants and ESEH members only. Please send applications to: Dr Phia Steyn, e-mail: m.s.steyn@stir.ac.uk by 31 May 2013. Details are on conference website: http://www.eseh2013.org/writing-and-publication-workshop.html.

There are plenty of other things coming up besides the ESEH conference. Here the news in brief:

• Nominations to the board of the ESEH requested

The European Society for Environmental History is inviting all members to nominate candidates for election to the board. Elections will be held at the Ordinary General Meeting at the ESEH conference in Munich, Germany, on 23 August 2013. Nominations for candidates for all posts on the Board are welcomed, i.e. President, Vice-Presidents, Treasurer, Secretary, and also for the Financial Control Committee. Please send nominations to the chair of the Nominating Committee: Martin Schmid, Alpen-Adria Universität, Austria (martin.schmid@aau.at) by 4 June 2013 at the latest (according to the statutes, nominations must be sent to the Nominating Committee at least 80 days before the Ordinary General Meeting). Please include a one-page CV or link to the webpage of the nominee, with details of the person’s current post, previous posts (where relevant), degrees, main publications, research grants and projects, experience in academic societies, and any other relevant information.

· Call for paper proposals for NIES Research Symposium VIII, “Landscape, Environment, Emotion”

This symposium is being organized by the Nordic Network for Interdisciplinary Environmental Studies (NIES) in partnership with select research environments at the universities of Turku, Tampere and Oulu. It will take place at the Pori campus of the University of Turku, Finland, 25-27 September 2013.
The deadline for paper proposals is 1 May 2013. For more information please see the attached call. For questions regarding submissions, please contact Professor Maunu Häyrynen, mauhay@utu.fi .

· Call for Candidates: Doctoral Program “Environment and Society,” Rachel Carson Center, LMU Munich

Anyone considering a PhD in the environmental humanities is invited to apply to the doctoral program “Environment and Society” at the Rachel Carson Center/LMU Munich. The doctoral program brings together a range of disciplines and both intra and extra-university expertise, providing a stimulating and supportive environment for international scholars interested in understanding the complex interactions between the environment and its human inhabitants. Candidates for the winter semester 2013/2014 should submit an application by 1 June. Further details are on the website: http://www.en.proenviron.carsoncenter.uni-muenchen.de/aktuelles/call-for-candidates/index.html

· Call for Papers: Histories of Transport, Mobility, and Environment, Journal of Transport History, Special Issue

‘Conquest’, defilement and intrusion have been labels since pinned on many transport investments and mass traveling. Conversely, there have been transport projects linked with landscape beautification. The Journal of Transport History invites scholarly contributions that examine the historical relationship between transport and mobility and the natural environment for a proposed Special Issue scheduled for December 2014, to be edited by Thomas Zeller (author of Driving Germany: the Landscape of the German Autobahn, 1930-1970) and JTH editor Gordon Pirie. Final submissions for the JTH Special Environmental Issue will be due by 5 August 2013. For the full call, please see the website: http://manchester.metapress.com/content/122747.

More than one hundred new members have joined our society in the last couple of months. Thus I would like to take this opportunity to remind all ESEH members that they have free access to the electronic version of the most recent issues of the journal Environment and History, published by White Horse Press. The password for all 2013 issues of the journal is available by contact here if your are member of the ESEH.

Finally, a request: some ESEH members are listed with more than one e-mail address. Please let me know (at mauch@lmu.de) if you want to have one of the addresses removed from the master list.

With very best wishes from Munich,

Christof Mauch

President, European Society for Environmental History (ESEH)
