ENVIRONMENTAL HISTORY PhD WORKSHOP
Australian National University, Canberra
25-29 October, 2004
Are you writing a PhD in some aspect of environmental history?
For five days in October this year, environmental historians at the Australian National University will be running a small workshop for PhD students from around the country who are researching aspects of environmental history in Australia or elsewhere.
The aim of the workshop is to bring together doctoral students with common interests and to learn from one another about how to address significant and exciting themes in this emerging field of scholarship. Students will be expected to participate by speaking and writing about their own research.
Morning sessions will be held each of the five days (Monday 25 October to Friday 29 October) and afternoons will be reserved for preparatory reading, fieldwork, optional museum and archival visits, and informal meetings.
Course organisers and presenters will be Dr Tom Griffiths (History Program, Research School of Social Sciences, ANU), Dr Libby Robin (Centre for Resource and Environmental Studies, ANU), Dr Mark McKenna (History, Faculty of Arts, ANU), Dr Christy Collis (Centre for Australian Studies, University of Queensland), and Dr Kirsty Douglas (History Program, RSSS, ANU).
How to apply
The workshop is designed for doctoral students currently enrolled at Australian universities who are undertaking studies in environmental history (in all its forms). The number of participants will be strictly limited (to facilitate discussion). There is no registration fee.
Please apply by providing the following:
a brief curriculum vitae
two short statements (totalling no more than 500 words) explaining the subject of your doctoral research and what you hope to gain from such a workshop, and
documented support from your supervisor (a signature will do!)
Send your application to the address below or via email Tom.Griffiths@anu.edu.au by Wednesday, 11 August 2004.
