EHW2021: Call for Papers

We were unable to organise a full Environmental History Workshop this year, but didn’t want to let the year go without creating the annual space for environmental history in the UK that we established EHW for in the first place.

So we are organising a short and sweet ‘What are you doing?’ workshop, inspired by the successful ‘What’s happening in Black British History?’ workshop series. We invite proposals for ten-minute talks on future, new and ongoing research in environmental history. We would like this to be an opportunity to connect with other environmental historians based in the UK and further afield. Think of this as a chance to say ‘hi!’ to your fellow researchers, to float new project ideas, discuss a problem or conundrum in your work or talk about work in progress.

The workshop will be on Zoom on Wednesday 1 December, from 2pm to 4pm, and will feature up to six ten-minute talks.

If you would like to speak at the workshop, please send a title and short description of what you propose to talk about (no more than 150 words) to by 31 October 2021. We will get back to you by Friday 5 November and hope to release the programme the following week.

Everyone is welcome to submit a proposal. If we receive more than six proposals we will prioritise welcoming new members to the environmental history community, selecting proposals from new scholars or those making their way into environmental history for the first time.

We’re excited to be working with the Bristol Centre for Environmental Humanities to put together the event this year.
