We’re really thrilled to be able to share the programme for September’s workshop with you.
We received a phenomenal response to the call for papers. The diversity of topics and approaches represented on the programme is remarkable, and should prove for a very stimulating day in September. As a collective, we hope to have imposed some kind of logic on the papers and have divided them into sessions on hydropolitics, boundary crossing, energy landscapes, subterranean histories, healthy environments, and disaster and instability. We’re delighted to welcome Professor Vinita Damodaran, Professor of South Asian History and Director of the Centre for World Environmental History at the University of Sussex as our keynote.
There were a number of papers we couldn’t find space for in the programme but that we really wanted to hear. So, taking inspiration from the excellent Voices of the People symposium hosted on the Many Headed Monster, we will be holding a virtual workshop throughout August, showcasing the best environmental history research that we couldn’t schedule for September. Stay tuned to our dedicated blog page for updates.
