We invite panel, paper, and poster proposals
Environmental history at an international scale and with global reach burst into the scholarly world with the first World Congress of Environmental History held in 2009 at the Universities of Roskilde (Denmark) and Malmö (Sweden). The Congress attracted hundreds of delegates. Based on the success of the conference the International Consortium of Environmental History Organizations (ICEHO) has been formally established and membership is growing. (See www.iceho.org)
Planning for the Second World Congress of Environmental History is now well advanced.
The theme of the Congress, ‘Environmental History in the Making’, aims to create synergy among all scholars engaged in environmental history, to fathom the reach of the field and to investigate its focus areas and theoretical underpinnings. In line with the aims of ICEHO, the broad objective is to foster international communication and collaboration, to share information and disseminate research and to discuss issues, concerns and challenges relevant to the field. Thus, for the second time environmental historians from all over the world – senior academics and young scholars – with different disciplinary backgrounds will meet in a global forum to further the development of environmental history world-wide.
