In occasion of this workshop, which will take place in Bucharest, Romania, 2-4 December 2011, We want to gather a variety of scholars, not only specialists in environmental history, but also political, cultural and social historians, historical geographers and historical anthropologists with an interest in nationalism, nature perception and/or symbolic politics.
The workshop is limited to 20 participants. The working language is English.
Each selected participant will prepare a draft text that will be pre-circulated to workshop attendees in mid-November 2011. Each paper will be briefly presented by the author in a short talk (10 min.) and then fully discussed by all the workshop attendees. After the workshop, all participants will be asked to revise their papers for possible inclusion in an edited volume to be submitted to an international academic press or as a journal special issue.
