ESEH Biennial Conference 2019 (Tallinn, Estonia, 21 to 25 August 2019)

ESEH Biennial Conference 2019
Tallinn, Estonia, 21 to 25 August 2019
Hosting institution: Estonian Centre for Environmental History (KAJAK), Tallinn University
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. 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!

Three doctoral students in History of Science, Technology and Environment

Third-cycle subject: History of Science, Technology and Environment
The PhD education takes place in the ERC-funded project “The Rise of Global Environmental Governance:  A History of the Contemporary Human-Earth Relationship” (GLOBEGOV). GLOBEGOV is a historical study of how humanity’s relation to planetary conditions and constraints became understood as a governance issue since the twentieth century. The key argument is that Global Environmental Governance (GEG) is inseparable from the rise of a planetary Earth systems science and understanding of global change that has affected international politics and broad communities of practice.
The project will study international, regional and national organizations, including governments, businesses, universities, and Non-Governmental Organizations, that have played roles in GEG. Research in GLOBEGOV will be based on multiple sources: archives, libraries, databases, other collections, the world wide web, and interviews with politicians, diplomats, civil servants, scholars and scientists, activists, members of NGOs, business leaders or representatives, journalists, or others.
Based at KTH in Stockholm the three PhD students may, depending on their individual research tasks, pursue part of their work in different world regions in close collaboration with senior GLOBEGOV researchers at the University of Cambridge, UC Berkeley, California, and at the University of Sydney.
