Green Protest: Activism to Protect the Environment around the Globe
Christof Mauch (German Historical Institute)
Nathan Stolzfus (Florida State University)
The German Historical Institute in Washington D.C.and Florida State University invite proposals for a workshop on activism to protect the environment. The focus of this event will be environmental activism in its national and cultural context. Each paper will provide a case study of a specific country. We especially welcome papers that discuss the issue in historical perspective.
Among the questions that should be addressed in the papers are the following:
What were the ideological, social and political origins of efforts to protect the environment?
What triggered environmental concerns?
What forms of action and mobilisation of people and ressources were taken?
How did conflict about the environment evolve, and what were the outcomes?
The workshop will feature papers from countries on all continents. At this point we particularly invite proposals on North America, South America, Africa, and Australia.
The workshop, scheduled to meet December 1 and 2, 2000 in Tallahassee, Florida, will bring together approximately 10 historians and social scientists from different parts of the world. Travel expenses will be covered, lodging and meals will be provided. Proposals (1-2 pp) for a workshop paper and a short CV should be submitted no later than September 8, 2000 to Bärbel Thomas, GHI firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please direct specific inquiries to Professor Nathan Stoltzfus.
