Europe and the wider World
The European Society for Environmental History invites proposals for panels and posters for its upcoming 4th conference in Amsterdam, The Netherlands, 5-8 June 2007.
Environmental historians increasingly work on a global scale, addressing global issues or comparing local and national experiences with other locales. Given the interconnectedness of all parts of the planet in matters ecological, this makes excellent sense. Europe has had longstanding relationships with the rest of the world from the beginning of historical time, causing both enrichment and deprivation of biodiversity and habitats. Lively exchanges of humans and other biota, and of environmental ideas, techniques and practices, existed with Asia and Africa already from Antiquity onwards, with the Americas, Australia and New Zealand from the end of the Middle Ages onwards. The Netherlands, a country with a long tradition of global exchange, was one of the first nations to foster environmental awareness.
The challenging theme for the 4th conference of the European Society for Environmental History in Amsterdam, hosted by the Vrije Universiteit (Free University) in Amsterdam is therefore ‘Environmental connections: Europe and the wider World’.
Submission of proposals for panels, papers and posters: 1 Feb. - 1 June 2006
