Texas A&M University at Galveston invites proposals for a one-day, virtual symposium, “Estuaries and the Anthropocene.” This event will bring together scholars from across the humanities, social sciences, and STEM fields to explore the multifaceted connections between human societies and estuarine environments during both historical and contemporary time periods.
The conference will take place virtually on May 21, 2021, featuring interdisciplinary panels and will conclude with a keynote address from Prof. Jack E. Davis, the author of The Gulf: The Making of an American Sea and the recipient of the 2017 Pulitzer Prize for History.
The symposium is open to paper proposals covering any time period and any part of the earth as long as they address the dynamic relationship between human societies and estuarine environments.
Proposals should be no more than 300 words, indicating the method of presentation, and include a CV. Additionally, the symposium’s proceedings will be considered for publication in an edited collection.
