The CITCEM – Transdisciplinary Research Centre «Culture, Space and Memory» invites researchers to submit papers to be published in its Journal «CEM / Cultura, Espaço e Memória 7 – 2016», on the theme Crossing Borders: Connecting Edges of Environmental History. Recently, CITCEM organised a conference on this comprehensive topic, aimed at gathering different research approaches and opening opportunities for inter-, multi- and transdisciplinary research. CITCEM brings together researchers from the fields of History and the Environment, creating an open space for a wide range of domains such as History, Geography, Archaeology, Demography, Literature, Art, Museology, Film, etc..
Environmental History emerges in the context of social and institutional concerns regarding the sustainable management of natural resources, and the positioning of the environment as world heritage. It postulates that knowledge of the past is essential to designing environmental strategies and policies for the future. The Social Sciences and the Humanities must play an active role in the effort to understand the current confrontations and discussions on this topic, contributing to overcoming the boundaries of scientific fields, a vision that has been slow to gain acceptance in Portugal.
This special issue proposes to address three transversal and global lines of approach:
– to discuss the use of natural resources;
– to study ‘nature in itself’;
– to interpret all lines of thought and representation of nature.
These lines may also include other topics which indicate a wide range of potential approaches: climate changes, wellbeing, social and environmental resilience, disasters and hazards, science and environment, environmental conflicts, energy and change, endangered species, iconic species and human routes, artistic explorations in an environmental context, imperialism and environment, literature and environment/nature, metaphors and perceptions of landscape changes.
