First Joint Meeting of the American Society for Environmental History (ASEH) and the Forest History Society (FHS)
Durham, NC, March 28-April 1, 2001
The American Society for Environmental History and the Forest History Society invite panel and paper proposals for its 2001 meeting in Durham, NC. Papers that examine any aspect of human-environment interactions over time are welcome. The program committee especially encourages proposals related to the theme of the conference. As we enter a new century, the field of environmental history has a responsibility to bring historical analysis to bear on environmental/social issues facing the world at the dawn of the new millennium. Papers and panels might focus on examples of how environmental history informs public policy, resource management, pollution control, local and international development, social conflict, the understanding of environmental problems, etc. We welcome proposals from scholars in all fields.
The program committee strongly encourages proposers to organize complete panels with two or three papers, a chair, and a commentator. Though proposals for individual papers will be considered, they are more difficult to accommodate than full panels. Interest in environmental history is rapidly expanding and competition for space on the program is keen. To enhance your chances of being accepted, please be certain to follow all instructions and submit all required information. Individuals may not present more than one paper at the conference, but paper presenters may also serve as chair of another panel.
Proposals should include FIVE copies of the following:
For panel proposals, provide a cover sheet with the title of the panel, the full name and affiliation of each participant, and the titles of each paper.
For each paper proposal (including those on organized panels), submit a 250-word abstract of the paper, and
A two-page maximum resume for each participant, including full name, address, phone, fax, and e-mail address.
Please do not send additional materials or exceed word or page limits.
Proposals should be postmarked no later than Aug. 1, 2000. Please send all five copies to:
