Producing and Consuming Natures: 2002 Annual Meeting of American Society for Environmental History
Call for Papers Deadline:
PRODUCING AND CONSUMING NATURES
American Society for Environmental History
Denver, Colorado March 20-23, 2002
The conference seeks to explore the various ways humans have historically drawn nature into their lives -- through working and imagining, devouring and debating, transforming and transporting it. We encourage papers on the human history of nature as symbol as well as substance, in popular culture and consumption as well as production and extraction. By framing nature as plural, we also invite topics that engage a diversity of views about what nature is or should be, within or across cultures.
The program committee STRONGLY ENCOURAGES proposals for complete panels with two to three individual papers, a chair, and a commentator. Although we also welcome individual paper proposals, such proposals are more
difficult to accommodate than full panels. The committee is seeking proposals from scholars across a broad range of disciplines in the humanities and social sciences. Interdisciplinary panels are particularly encouraged.

1)For panel proposals, provide a cover sheet with
a. the title of the panel;
