CfP: 11th Biennial European Society for Environmental History (ESEH) Conference Same planet, different worlds: environmental histories imagining a new; Bristol, United Kingdom | 5th-9th July 2021

The European Society for Environmental History (ESEH) is pleased to invite proposals for our upcoming conference at the University of Bristol, UK.

We want to host a conference for a post-plague world. Right now, our old ways of living have been interrupted, disrupted and ruptured by the COVID-19 outbreak.

 


This devastating global pandemic carries an undeniable message of our entanglement across continents, species, societies, and bodies. Yet the virus hits us differently. We are all on the same planet but we are experiencing radically and divergently altered worlds. We thus draw inspiration for our conference theme from Arundhati Roy’s observation: ‘But the rupture exists. And in the midst of this terrible despair, it offers us a chance to rethink the doomsday machine we have built for ourselves. Nothing could be worse than a return to normality. Historically, pandemics have forced humans to break with the past and imagine their world anew. This one is no different. It is a portal, a gateway between one world and the next’. The conference will provoke questions and conversations that can help us through the gateway. After all, our conferences have always been meaningful reactions to global conditions. Twenty years ago, at St Andrews we held the first ESEH Conference on ‘Environmental History: Problems and Potential’. Two decades later, we are now long past ‘potential’ – we need urgent intervention from historians in the crises of our times.We embrace history that matters and our discipline’s ability to create ‘useable pasts’ for unusual times. This conference moves from the premise of an entangled world: first and foremost enmeshed in a global pandemic, a shared ecological crisis and climate catastrophe, as well as cultural connections from past colonial and postcolonial histories. Understanding entanglements and challenging boundaries has been important in bringing us together over the years. In Prague, we considered the boundaries of ‘diversity’. In Zagreb, we tackled boundaries as ‘contact zones’. In Tallin, we explored the boundaries ‘in/of environmental history’. In Bristol, we cross the boundaries into a new world.Thus this conference resists a ‘return to normality’. These are extraordinary times and this will be an extraordinary conference. At this critical moment, as historians we need to look without and within. Certainly, we need to engage with the wider world: environmental historians are vital in today’s biggest planetary emergencies. Yet at the same time, we need to engage within our own discipline to rethink our academic practices in terms of environmental realities. This means thinking about writing ethical history, sustainable history and history that matters.We want to use this opportunity to imagine anew: both how we have conversations (the conference format) and what the conversations are about (the possibilities of our discipline). This conference thus will be engaging in experimental new ways of sharing and generating knowledge, including a blended and collaborative co-learning environment.Possible topics to be discussed under the umbrella concept of ‘Same planet, different world’, include, but are not limited to the following:Pandemics: Politics, panics and panaceasEnvironmental histories of public health and public policyIndustrial and agricultural impact on diseaseResisting the return to normality: the activist historian and strategies for sustainable researchEnvironmental histories of ‘wicked problems’Edge effects: the uneven fallout of climate changeOther knowledges: vernacular histories and indigenous knowledge systemsBurning issue: fire historiesJustice and the past: writing history in the time of Black Lives MatterTechnology and envirotechnical systems in natural resource protection and conservationEnvironmental justice: the legacies of colonialism and post-colonialismWriting more­-than-­human historiesCreativity and the historical disciplineThe possibilities and pitfalls of interdisciplinary researchImagining other futuresWe also welcome papers/provocations/presentations on environmental history outside the conference theme.

Digital Dimensions

We acknowledge the uncertainty of our times and the sustainability issues relating to international conferences. The ESEH believes in the value of a physical conference. Post-COVID, being in place together will hold new significance. But we also recognise that it may not prove possible – or desirable for some – to meet face-to-face. Our conference will therefore offer some online possibilities for those delegates who cannot make it in person, including keynote and plenary livestreams, poster sessions, and opportunities to connect with each other online. Planning a large international conference in these COVID-19 times is a difficult business. While acknowledging our gratitude to the Local Arrangement Committee in Bristol as they on the uncertainties of this situation, the ESEH is also making preparations for a fully digital conference in case major disruptions in international travelling will impede the materialization of the in-person conference.

An Inclusive and Diverse Conference

Commitment to equality, diversity and inclusion is at the heart of ESEH. We recognise the unique contributions of every member of our society and seek ways of ensuring that people of all identities and in all circumstances can contribute to our biennial conference and to the wider life of our society. We strive to promote equality and diversity at our conference, in relation to conference participation,  and the composition of topics comprising the conference program. We also endeavour to create a platform to encourage active and sustained debate on issues of marginalisation and accessibility amongst our members.We want to create a set of inclusive conference practices and ‘resist the normality’ of hierarchies and silos. In this different world, new conference practices are available to us. We will consider all historical periods, all geographical areas and all disciplines. To bolster diversity at the event and promote new forms of networking, we are hoping for panels/interventions where the presenters come from different regions, generations, genders, different institutions or different disciplines. We also encourage demographic balance and the use of emergent scholars as facilitators/session chairs. Graduate students will be offered a special reduced fee.

Conventional Discussions

We are looking for session suggestions, individual papers, roundtables, posters and other, more experimental sessions. Of course, panels and roundtables are indispensable and constitute much of the conference, but we need new modes of conversation. So we encourage submissions that introduce a productive conflict of views, interpretations, or methodologies:1.

Panel sessions

Sessions are 3 papers of 20 minutes each or 4 papers of 15 minutes each. Other formats (debate panels, roundtables) should be submitted under the Roundtable or ‘Different World’ session categories. Session proposals will include a session title and session abstract of 200-300 words; list of contributors and a chair; and individual paper titles and abstracts of around 200 words each. Session proposals may also include a commentator/discussant in place of the fourth paper – or not. Please remember, 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, the scientific committee prefers session submissions, and cannot guarantee thematic coherence for the combined sessions. Paper proposals are to consist of an abstract of 200-300 words.3.

Roundtables

Scholars can also propose 90-minute roundtables, consisting of panels ranging from 3-6 people and a chair who speak to a common question or theme. Successful roundtables involve interaction between the panelists, an active chair who shaping the conversation, and time for the audience to interact with the panel. Roundtable proposals are to consist of an abstract of 200-300 words.4. Posters and Virtual PostersPoster proposals will include an abstract of 200-300 words. There will be a designated display area, and a special plenary session for all poster authors to present their research in 5 minutes time per poster.

The Environment & History Poster Prize sponsored by The White Horse Press is awarded to the best poster (€100 award) and the 2nd place poster (€50 award). We will also permit short videos in lieu of posters, to enable digital dissemination of research For ideas on presentation see https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1RwJbhkCA58

Different World” Sessions

In the spirit of rethinking the conventional, we welcome proposals for unorthodox sessions with creative formats. To submit a proposal for a special session, please provide a 200 word abstract, describing the activity, including any special logistics you might need. Ideas include: – Workshops and new research tool demonstrationsTeach others your skills at GIS, writing, offer mentorship or field-work tips. –  “Difficult conversations”Presenters address sensitive issues within environmental history within a safe space. We use what we call Chatham House Rule 2.0: The discussion is not tweeted and remains within the confines of the room.  – “Flipping the panels”Papers will be made available in advance as draft papers or even short video presentations. Rather than just summarize their paper, presenters come to the panel with questions they need answered to improve their research. Instead of just listening to presentations, audience members come with their own questions/suggestions. The panels become conversations between presenters and the audience in collaborative research efforts. This is also an inclusive way of extending the peer-review process. – History CafesA facilitator provides a question on a pre-determined topic or proposes a problem that needs solving. The group divides into smaller groups, discusses, and submits feedback for the larger group at the end. Conversation and participation are the key processes and collaborative projects are stimulated.– PechaKucha presentations.In this rapid “chit chat” format invented in Tokyo, speakers show 20 images, each for 20 seconds. The images advance automatically and speakers talk along with the images. It is like an “elevator pitch meets karaoke!” – Soundclash debatesWe import this idea from the music industry too. Soundclashes normally occur when two different bands or djs play against each other on either side of the stage. The conference encourages intellectual frisson by debating opposing points of view over contentious issues (methodology, theory, historiographical model) in environmental history.  – Book loungeWe encourage authors to offer a reading from their recent book. Also welcome are shared discussions of a single book, major paper, movie or even primary source is the subject on which other presenters are focused. – The Historian in the MirrorReflective roundtables that examine our own academic practices, activism and ourselves.SubmissionEach person can be a primary presenter in only one session proposal, but can also serve as a chair/commentator in a second session proposal.

The conference language is English; no submissions in other languages will be accepted. All proposals will be reviewed by the ESEH Program Committee. All proposals should be submitted through our online submission system: https://app.oxfordabstracts.com/stages/2027/submitter

The submission deadline is 31st October 2020.

Those who have secured a place on the programme will be advised of this by the end of the calendar year. They will be asked to pay a non-refundable deposit of 50 Euros (which will be subtracted from the overall conference registration fee) by mid-February 2021 to secure their place on the programme. In light of the financial damage that can be wrought on scholarly societies in these unprecedented global circumstances, we hope that you understand why we need to ask for this.

Questions about proposals should be directed to the Programme Committee, Professor Sandra Swart, through the email conference@eseh.org.

Call for proposals to host the 2024 World Congress of Environmental History (WCEH)

Dear colleagues,

After three very successful international meetings (in Copenhagen, Denmark, Guimarães, Portugal, and Florianopolis, Brazil) the fourth World Congress for Environmental History is scheduled for 2024.  

The International Consortium of Environmental History Organizations (ICEHO) is now calling for proposals from parties interested in hosting the 2024 conference, preferably in July or August of that year.

The deadline for proposals is 15 January 2021.

We encourage proposals from any part of the globe. Proposals should come in the first instance from individuals or organizations affiliated with universities or scholarly societies. While the support of local convention and visitors’ bureaus may become important once the site is proposed and under consideration, the proposal should not come directly from the convention and visitor’s bureau or events services. 

If you are interested or if you would like to submit a notice of intent, please contact ICEHO President Graeme Wynn at wynn@geog.ubc.ca or ICEHO Secretary Alexandra Vlachos at alexandra.vlachos@hist.unibe.ch for further details and a copy of the conference guidelines, before August 2020 if possible. 

We aim to finalize the site selection by July 2021.  

Please keep in mind that hosting a conference that will likely attract 500-750 delegates requires substantial effort and time as well as significant institutional support and fundraising, but it is also a terrific opportunity to showcase local/ national scholarship, to advance environmental awareness and to promote local initiatives. 

We look forward to your proposals.

Congreso internacional de humanidades ambientales

Relatos, Mitos y Artes para el Cambio

Alcalá de Henares, 3-6 de julio de 2018

Las Humanidades Ambientales suponen un marco crítico transdisciplinar y transnacional que está emergiendo con fuerza en los últimos años. Dicho marco cuestiona las divisiones entre las ciencias humanas, sociales y ecológicas, por resultar obsoletas a la hora de enfrentar, analizar y articular los retos sociales, culturales y ecológicos del siglo XXI, con sus múltiples escalas, sus riesgos biofísicos y sus dificultades representacionales. Las “humanidades ambientales” surgen de las sinergias entre filosofía e historia ambiental, ecocrítica, arte y naturaleza, pensamiento ecológico de-/post-colonial, ciencias del sistema terrestre, filosofía de la ciencia, ecologismo social y político, ecofeminismo y un largo etcétera. Este congreso pretende contribuir a este fascinante debate al tiempo que lo introduce en España, donde todavía no se ha establecido.

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…

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.
