ESEH Newletter No. 4

Dear Friends and Colleagues, Members of the ESEH:

In the hope that you are all having an enjoyable summer, I am writing to you today first and foremost because I just received the password for access to our journal Environment and History.

We are very grateful to Whitehorse Press for providing all ESEH members free access to recent and current issues of Environment and History.

I’d like to use this opportunity to remind you that ESEH members receive multiple benefits besides electronic access to the journal, including:

  • a greatly reduced rate for hardcopy subscriptions  of Environment and History
  • a huge discount for the registration at ESEH’s biannual conferences (savings of 50 to 150 euros for the 2013 ESEH conference in Munich)
  • the opportunity to write and publish entries for the Arcadia Project (http://www.environmentandsociety.org/arcadia)
  • an opportunity to apply for participation in ESEH summer schools

ESEH membership fees are very low—20 euros per year for those who make more than 1000 euros per month, and 10 euros per year for those who earn less than 1000 euros. Please make sure that you have paid your membership fee. Our treasurer and secretary are happy to send you a receipt. Since the ESEH is a nonprofit operation your fee or your (much appreciated) donation to the society will be tax-deductible for many of you. You may also choose to pay for more than one year at a time, e.g. for past or upcoming years.

Secondly I would like to report that the ESEH summer school in Flaran, France, which focused on rural versus environmental history, was a big success. Ten candidates (3 recent postdocs and 7 doctoral students) from different countries were selected by a committee that consisted of Dolly Jørgensen, Emmanuel Huertas, and Marguerite Ronin. Lecturers from France, Canada and the United States served as mentors.

For the upcoming ESEH summer school in St. Petersburg 16 applicants were selected by ESEH Vice President Julia Lajus and by the members of the ESEH summer school committee (Dolly Jørgensen, András Vadas, and Marguerite Ronin). The participants include students from Canada, Estonia, Finland, Germany, Italy, Latvia, Russia, Spain, the United Kingdom, and the United States. More information on both of these summer schools will be posted on the ESEH website.

Thirdly, thanks to an initiative of Marcus Hall and Patrick Kupper (both at the University of Zurich, Switzerland) we are already planning another ESEH  summer school that will take place in the Bavarian Alps of Germany in August 2013, just a few days before the ESEH biannual conference starts in Munich.

Fourth, we are excited about the upcoming ESEH conference in Munich on “Circulating Natures: Water—Food—Energy.” The conference will feature excursions, receptions, and a banquet (all included in the conference fee), as well as a book fair and a silent book auction (the proceeds of which will go to the ESEH), a keynote by a public intellectual, a lunchtime World Food Café, and a workshop for younger scholars that will help them develop their writing and presentation skills. Watch for more information about the conference in future newsletters and in the ESEH Notepad. You can also learn about the conference at www.eseh2013.org, where you will find instructions for submitting a proposal for a paper or a panel (deadline October 15, 2012).

Fifth, since our society is now well over 10 years old, the ESEH board has decided to collect images that illustrate the society’s history. If you have photos of past ESEH events—conferences, workshops, board meetings or summer schools—please send them to ESEH secretary Phia Steyn (m.s.steyn@stir.ac.uk) and to our webmaster Wilko von Hardenberg (Wilko.Hardenberg@carsoncenter.lmu.de). We are hoping to exhibit the photos in a password-protected zone of the ESEH website and also to present them at the ESEH conference in  2013.

Finally, you might want to check out the society’s website, eseh.org, which contains new information on the different ESEH regions and (as of August 25) an overview of recent book publications by ESEH members.

With best regards,

Christof Mauch, President, ESEH

e-book: Ambiente e sociedade: Trajetos de história, ecologia política e educação ambiental

Organizado por

Jozimar Paes de Almeida e Roger Domenech Colacios

Trata-se de uma coletânea de textos que privilegiam a análise histórica como caminho para a reflexão sobre as raízes dos problemas ambientais presentes no mundo contemporâneo. Um dos objetivos do livro é analisar, através da História, as relações das sociedades humanas com a natureza. Outro ponto que merece ser sublinhado é a análise de como a História Ambiental vem sendo utilizada no ensino de História. De forma muito oportuna vários dos textos focalizam livros didáticos utilizados nas escolas brasileiras, que são fortemente mercantilizados.

L’invention politique de l’environnement (Vingtième Siècle-Special Volume)

Vingtième Siècle

Spécial L’invention politique de l’environnement

Nº 113, janvier-mars 2012

La revista Vingtième Siècle. Revue d’histoire ha publicado un número especial dedicado enteramente a la «invención política del medio ambiente», coordinado e introducido por Stéphane Frioux y Vincent Lemire.

Por destacar algunos temas interesante, existen nuevas aportaciones sobre el medio ambiente y el sindicalismo (Renaud Bécot), la extrema izquierda (Philipe Buton), la patronal (Daniel Boullet) y algunas asociaciones como Les Amis de la Terre (Alexis Vrignon). Sobre regímenes autoritarios o totalitarios, además de un artículo sobre el franquismo, Marie-Hélène Mandrillon sigue publicando nuevas ingestigaciones para el contexto ex-soviético y Johann Chapoulot desmonta el pasado verde de la Alemania Nazi. El régimen de Vichy y su relación al medio ambiente es también objeto de un artículo interesante (Chris Pearson). Charvolin y Lette continuan preocupándose por cuestiones clásicas de la historiografía ambiental francesa: los desbordamientos ambientales y el parque nacional de la Vanoise.

Nuevas aportaciones sobre contextos anglosajones merecen la atención de tres artículos y uno de ellos analiza la cuestión de un medio ambiente global en los años setenta, década que aparece señalada como aquella del giro ambiental en casi todos los artículos de este número.

Por último, Geneviève Massard-Guibaud y François Walter plantean duras críticas a dos libros que parecían ser paradigmáticos. El primero trata sobre la cuestión ambiental en sociedad francesa sobre los años 1970 (Michael Bess. The light-green society. Ecology and Technological modernity in France, 1960-2000. Chicago, University of Chicago Press, 2003) y el segundo, como no podía ser menos, se trata del famoso libro de John R. McNeill Algo nuevo bajo el sol (Madrid, Alianza, 2003).
