Tallinn, Estonia, 21 to 25 August 2019
Hosting institution: Estonian Centre for Environmental History (KAJAK), University of Tallinn
The Next ESEH Biennial Conference will be held in Tallinn!
To build on the discussions at the 2017 biennial conference in Zagreb, the 2019 Tallinn conference will operate under the notion of “boundaries in/of environmental history”, and will expand the idea of natures in-between to reach out for boundaries between humans and non-humans, environment and technologies, transcorporeality, transboundary agents, planetary boundaries as well as disciplinary boundaries and boundaries of science and arts, activism, popular science, etc. Keep posted for a Call for Papers to be released in 2018! The CfP would include a specific call for inter-area/border-crossing panels to encourage cross-European comparison. We are excited to have Prof. Finn Arne Jørgensen as the head of Programme Committee.
ESEH Tallinn team has committed to an ambitious diversification policy that seeks to encourage different session formats that diversify the ways we transmit knowledge, and promote gender and age balance at our conference. We are also dedicated to seeking low-cost accommodation for participants with limited financial support. If you still cannot make it to Tallinn, don’t worry – we are hoping to live-stream some of the sessions!
See you in Tallinn!
