This (conference/workshop) seeks to encourage a conversation between political and environmental historians on the topic of environmental politics in the modern era (particularly the nineteenth and twentieth centuries).
Among the issues it seeks to address are the following: What was the role of nature in modern politics? When can we say environmentalism became a significant political force? Why did ‘Green’ parties fail? What was distinctive about European environmental politics? How have political parties adapted to environmentalism and issues of environmental justice? What happened to conservation in the age of environment?
