SOCIAL CONFLICT AND ENVIRONMENTAL CHANGE IN COMPARATIVE AND HISTORICAL PERSPECTIVE
A Northeast Regional Conference
Yale University, April 17, 2010
Henry R. Luce Hall
34 Hillhouse Avenue
New Haven, Connecticut
Yale University’s working group on global environmental history will host a one-day conference on “Social Conflict and Environmental Change in Comparative and Historical Perspective.”
Three moderated panel sessions, involving doctoral students from eight northeastern universities, will explore global social and environmental conflicts.
Sessions include: “Political Conflict and Technical Expertise in Resource Development”; “Border Landscapes and Social Conflict”; and, “Extraction and Exploitation of Biological Resources.” The papers will reflect diverse approaches to environmental history and engage the histories of countries and regions across the globe.
In addition to the panel presentations, Professor DONALD WORSTER of the University of Kansas will deliver a lunchtime address, and a faculty panel featuring KARL JACOBY (Brown), EMMANUEL KREIKE (Princeton), and HARRIET RITVO (MIT) will conclude the day. Faculty from Yale, Cornell, Wesleyan, and Boston University will chair and comment on individual panels.
