The European Society for Environmental History welcomes you to participate in its sixth biannual conference being held from 28th June to 2nd July 2011 at the University of Turku and Åbo Akademi University.
The midsummer conference in Turku will be an innovative and new type of environmental meeting. The aim is to make this conference analytic, interactive and conversational. Welcome are proposals on complete sessions, individual papers and posters. Complimenting the traditional session programme with consecutive short talks, this conference provides four other session formats.
The five-day meeting will comprise scientific presentations, discussions, debates, keynote lectures, field trips and social events. Besides the main theme Encounters of Sea and Land, the conference will deal with a broad range of subthemes scattered both geographically and chronologically. The participation of young scholars and researchers applying multidisciplinary approaches is particularly encouraged. The conference also provides an opportunity to become better acquainted with Nordic research on environmental history.
The deadline for all types of submissions is Monday, 3 May 2010.
Further information is available at the conference website http://www.eseh2011.utu.fi.
