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.
