A Northeast Environmental History Conference

New Haven, Connecticut
Environmental History at Yale will host a one-day conference on “Creating Healthy Landscapes: Human and Environmental Well-being in Comparative and Historical Perspective,” on March 26, 2011
Three moderated panel sessions, involving doctoral students from seven northeastern universities, will explore the multiple meanings of human and environmental health as they have been played out in the shaping of the landscape.
Sessions include “Envisioning Imperial Landscapes,” “Finding Rejuvenation in Nature,” and Extraction and Exploitation of Biological Resources.” The papers reflect diverse approaches to environmental history and span countries and regions around the globe.
In addition to the graduate student panel presentations, a faculty panel featuring JOYCE CHAPLIN (Harvard), JAMES MCCANN (Boston University), and CHRISTOPHER SELLERS (SUNY-Stony Brook) will conclude the day.
