ICTA-UAB to host an Interdisciplinary Workshop on Drought and Adaptation in the Mediterranean during the Little Ice Age (1300 – 1850 AD)

WATERMARKS – Interdisciplinary Workshop on Drought and Adaptation in the Mediterranean during the Little Ice Age (1300 – 1850 AD) 

Understanding how societies of the past struggled to adapt to climate variability is critically needed to advance research about climate change adaptation today (Adamson et al. 2018). During the historical period known as the Little Ice Age not only average temperatures decreased but extreme weather events became more frequent (White 2014; White 2011; Oliva et al. 2018). This period constitutes an excellent opportunity for the joint work of researchers from the human and natural sciences interested in adaptation. In the Mediterranean, periods of drought marked how communities experienced the Little Ice Age. Recent research has shown how local communities combined different strategies to cope with drought, including infrastructural, institutional and symbolic responses which changed throughout time (Grau-Satorras et al. 2016; Grau-Satorras et al. 2018). 

At the crossroads between historical climatology and environmental history, the aim of this workshop is to further our understanding of the complex human impacts of climate variability in the Mediterranean during the Little Ice Age, with special attention to adaptation to the study of drought. Building on the studies of drought reconstruction in Spain following rogation ceremonies (Barriendos 1997; Domínguez-Castro et al. 2012) and attending to the current state of the art on the study of past droughts with documentary data (Brázdil et al. 2018), the ambition of this workshop is to foster interdisciplinary communication. Transdisciplinary contributions that combine the work of historians, natural scientists and archaeologists (Izdebski et al. 2016) or researchers from other disciplines will be especially welcomed. The workshop will include three keynotes: Andrea Kiss (Vienna University of Technology), Mariano Barriendos (University of Barcelona) and Mar Grau Satorras (Universitat Oberta de Catalunya). John McNeill (Georgetown University) will act as discussant. Aiming at the publication of some of the contributions received, we call for both methodologically sound and nuanced transdisciplinary historical works from a wide range of disciplines that engage with the following topics in the Mediterranean region:

1. Methodological approaches towards establishing instruments for classification that bring together historical records that can be used as proxy for climate reconstruction, with particular attention to drought, rainfall and temperature;   2. Long-term transdisciplinary studies that integrate multi-proxy analyses of historical climate change;
  3. In-depth studies of specific severe hydro-climatic episodes during the LIA in the Mediterranean, particularly drought and floods, with attention to the responses developed by local societies to cope with the consequences of such events and prevent future episodes;

4. Human dimensions of historical climate change during the Little Ice Age;

5. Community and institutional adaptation to drought, strategies to cope with disturbances and climate variability;

6. Watering the city: engineering, building and maintaining urban water supply infrastructure in the face of ice and drought;

7. Irrigation schemes: infrastructural projects for agricultural irrigation in the Mediterranean;

8. War and water: in-depth analyses of military campaigns conditioned by drought.


Interested participants should send their abstracts (300 words) and a short biography (100 words) with contact details to the workshop organiser Dr. Santiago Gorostiza (Santiago.Gorostiza@uab.cat) by 14 June, 2019. Authors will be notified of acceptance by 1 July 2019. We ask participants to circulate a complete draft of their paper one month before workshop. 

The organisation of this workshop has received financial support from the Spanish Ministry of Science, Innovation and Universities, through the “María de Maeztu” program for Units of Excellence (MDM-2015-0552). 


Important dates

April 2019: Call for papers published 

14 June 2019: Deadline for contributions abstracts (abstracts 300 words plus a short biography 100 words)

1 July 2019: Communication of acceptance of contributions

1 October 2019: Deadline for submitting full papers

Thursday 24 and Friday 25 October 2019: Workshop at ICTA-UAB.

La Sociedad Latinoamericana y Caribeña de Historia Ambiental (SOLCHA), el Centro de Estudios Latinoamericanos de la Universidad de Stanford (CLAS) y la Fundación Tinker se complacen en anunciar la realización de la IV Escuela de Posgrados de SOLCHA-Simposio Tinker, que busca contribuir a la conformación de una red de académicos que trabajan en torno a la historia ambiental latinoamericana. Su eje, como en anteriores ocasiones (VER http://solcha.org/index.php/escuela-de-posgrados), será la discusión de los trabajos de los estudiantes. Esta escuela además continuará un esfuerzo comenzado por el profesor Mikael Wolfe de concebir un “reader” de historia ambiental latinoamericana, es decir, una publicación que reúna fuentes primarias y las presente. También contará con conferencias, discusiones, talleres y una salida de campo.

La escuela tendrá como profesores destacados investigadores en el tema que nos convoca, tanto historiadores como geógrafos, de cinco países y que trabajan tanto en América Latina como en Estados Unidos:

  • Mikael Wolfe Stanford University, California, Estados Unidos
  • Claudia Leal Universidad de los Andes, Bogotá, Colombia
  • Myrna Santiago St Mary’s College, Moraga, California
  • Sandro Dutra e Silva Universidade Estadual de Goiás; UniEvangélica, Anápolis, Brasil
  • Emily Wakild Boise State University, Idaho, Estados Unidos

  • Reinaldo Funes – Universidad de La Habana, Cuba; Yale MacMillan Center, Estados Unidos
  • Matthew Vitz – University of California, San Diego, Estados Unidos
  • Cynthia Radding – University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, Estados Unidos

La escuela contará con un máximo de 18 estudiantes. Todos los admitidos serán becados y tendrán cubierto alojamiento, desayunos, almuerzos y dos cenas. A quienes estudien en instituciones de América Latina y el Caribe se les financiará parte o la totalidad de los tiquetes aéreos, hasta USD $800 por tiquete, según la necesidad y la disponibilidad de recursos. Pueden presentarse estudiantes de maestría y doctorado de cualquier disciplina, cuya investigación sea en historia ambiental de América Latina o el Caribe. También pueden aplicar aquellas personas que hayan terminado su programa de posgrado en 2018 o en 2019, así como becarios de las escuelas pasadas, aunque tendrán prioridad quienes vayan a participar por primera vez.

Para postularse es necesario enviar, como un solo PDF, los siguientes documentos a ivescuelasolcha@gmail.com a más tardar el 15 de junio de 2019:

  1. Carta de presentación de máximo dos páginas que explique por

qué quiere participar, diga qué texto pretende presentar y exponga cómo puede aportar al fortalecimiento de la red de historia ambiental latinoamericana (por ejemplo, en su país o alrededor de un tema específico).

  1. Hoja de vida de máximo dos páginas.
  2. Una carta de recomendación, preferiblemente del tutor o tutora.

Estos documentos pueden estar en español, portugués o inglés.

Las discusiones de la escuela se harán en los tres idiomas (ingles, español y portugués), así que la única condición para participar es manejar uno de esos idiomas.

Las respuestas serán enviadas a más tardar el 15 de julio de 2019. Los aceptados tendrán que enviar antes del 25 de octubre de 2019:

  1. Un texto de su autoría de máximo 7,000 palabras de extensión (sin incluir notas ni bibliografía), en español, portugués o inglés, que puede ser un capítulo de la tesis, un borrador de artículo, o un proyecto de investigación.
  2. Una fuente primaria, junto con una explicación de máximo una página. Enviaremos más instrucciones al respecto a quienes sean aceptados.

Organizadores: Mikael Wolfe y Claudia Leal.
