International Master Course on Agricultural Heritage - call for application

CALL FOR APPLICATION
 
According to FAO, Agricultural Heritage Systems are land use systems and landscapes, including cultivated land, forests and pastures, rich in biocultural and  biological diversity, evolving from the co-adaptation of a community with the surrounding environment, according to needs and aspirations for sustainable development.
 
In 2002, FAO launched the idea of a program named Globally Important Agricultural Heritage Systems (GIAHS), to identify and safeguard agricultural sites characterized by traditional techniques and still providing many services to the ecosystem. At the same time, these agricultural systems contribute to the preservation of landscapes, of agrobiodiversity, ancestral knowledge and cultural and social values, transmitted through generations.
 
Today the GIAHS  program  includes more than 50 agricultural and forest sites across the word. In order to contribute to the program, in collaboration with the Italian Agency for Cooperation and Development, FAO, CBD and World Bank, the Laboratory for Landscape of the School of Agriculture of the University of Florence set up an International Master Course on Agricultural Heritage that will start in January 2019, as part of a larger national research program supporting GIAHS

CfP: 10th Biennial European Society for Environmental History (ESEH) Conference (Tallinn, Estonia, 21 to 25 August 2019)

CALL FOR PAPERS
10th Biennial European Society for Environmental History (ESEH) Conference
Tallinn, Estonia, 21 to 25 August 2019
 
Hosting institution: Estonian Centre for Environmental History (KAJAK), Tallinn University
 
The European Society for Environmental History (ESEH) is pleased to invite proposals for sessions, individual papers, roundtables, posters and other, more experimental forms of communicating scholarship for its 2019 biennial conference.
 
The theme of the conference will be Boundaries in/of Environmental History. Boundary studies is a rapidly growing field of interdisciplinary research that is increasingly relevant in historical research, for example, through studies on trans­national or migration histories, global and colonial environments, relations of humans and animals or technical systems. After a successful conference in Zagreb where we tackled boundaries as contact zones in between, we would like to turn inwards and address the phenomenon of boundaries as internal processes. An environmental historian negotiates constantly the boundaries of its own field and others, but also the boundaries between humans and non­humans, environment and technology, bodily and external, local and global. None of these boundaries are fixed, but constantly redrawn and challenged. Boundary zones mediate the contacts with other areas and act as filters for innovation, where difference and similarity need to be constantly negotiated and enacted.
 
 
Questions about proposals should be directed to the Head of the Programme Committee, Prof. Finn Arne Jørgensen, University of Stavanger, through the email This email address is being protected from spambots.
