A Northeast Regional Conference
Kroon Hall, Yale University
New Haven, Connecticut
** Paper Abstract Submission Deadline: December 11, 2013 **
OVERVIEW: Yale University’s working group on global environmental history invites paper proposals from graduate students at northeastern universities for a one-day conference on environmental history. Paper proposals from any region or time period are welcome. The conference seeks to showcase new projects in environmental history and to encourage vigorous dialogue among graduate students and faculty.
We invite papers that address environmental history in its broadest sense, whether dealing with political economy, society and culture, intellectual debates, science and technology, microorganisms and disease, or policy and planning. Conference organizers are particularly eager to include comparative and non-U.S. perspectives on environmental history.
The conference will consist of three moderated panel sessions featuring graduate student papers. A faculty panel will conclude the day. Presentations will be approximately 15 minutes long, based on papers circulated in advance to panel commentators and conference attendees.
The conference format is based on successful northeast regional conferences held at Yale in 2010, 2011, and 2012. For more information on past conferences, visit http://www.yale.edu/environmentalhistory/programs/conference.html
ABSTRACT SUBMISSION: Abstract submissions should be in the form of a SINGLE document in Microsoft Word or Adobe PDF format, and must include the following: (1) your name, institutional affiliation, and contact information; (2) a 300-word abstract; (3) a one-page C.V. Submissions must be emailed to email@example.com by December 11, 2013. Please include your name and paper title in the title of your submission.
Please do not submit panel proposals-- individual papers will be grouped into panels by the conference organizers.
Accepted presenters will be notified by December 20, 2013, and asked to submit a full version of their paper for circulation to conference attendees and commentators by March 20, 2014.
** Graduate students enrolled in doctoral programs in New England, New York, New Jersey, and eastern Pennsylvania are particularly encouraged to submit proposals. Graduate students from outside this region are welcome to submit proposals, but preference may be given to northeastern institutions.**
