Summary

Announcement

Presentation

The European Society for Environmental History promotes the study of environmental history in all academic disciplines and encourages anyone who has an interest in the field to join and become involved.

ESEH aims to:

  • encourage the study of European environmental history in a comparative perspective;
  • foster communication among environmental historians across Europe, and with colleagues elsewhere;
  • promote the further institutional development of environmental history within secondary and tertiary education;
  • promote the research and use of environmental history in academic programmes;
  • strengthen the crucial link between environmental history, all policy-making, and the general public.

In order to achieve these goals ESEH has developed a range of activities since its inception in 1999. The society publishes a newsletter, ESEH Notepad, which is quarterly published in the journal Environment and History, published by White Horse Press in Cambridge.

Guidelines for applicants

(1) Although multidisciplinarity is highly regarded, there has to be a clear environmental history focus in the planned program of the Summer School. A combination of classwork with fieldwork is strongly encouraged. The ESEH Summer School committee (SSC) advises applicants to select a topic which is neither too narrow nor too broad.

(2) One of the core ambitions of the ESEH is to strengthen the international knowledge transfer, mobility, and international networking among promising young environmental historians. As such, the summer school should be international, in that it has to involve scholars from more than one country or language group. In order to make this feasible, the courses should be taught in English. The selected summer school would preferably host a majority of European participants, but it should be open to members of all countries.

(3) The Summer School must be a PhD-level course, although recent PhD graduates and advanced Master’s students may be invited to attend. Both the duration of the summer school as well as the number of included students and teachers can be decided by the organizers themselves.

(4) There can be no fees for participants. The SSC will privilege proposals that will include free or heavily subsidised accommodation for the participants.

(5) As confirmed official ESEH support may help with obtaining other funding for the proposed Summer School, organizing committees are invited to submit their applications prior to having secured such funding. Please submit your proposal only if it is highly likely that the total funding obtained will be sufficient.

The successful applicant/s will receive the advisory support of the ESEH and a total of 500 EUR to support the Summer School, which will be advertised on the ESEH website as well as through the president’s newsletter. The successful applicant/s will have the right and obligation to use the ESEH logo in announcements, flyers and websites related to the selected summer school.

Deadline for 1st round of applications: March 2, 2020.

The ESEH Board and the ESEH Summer school committee will consider the applications in March 2020 and by April 1st at the latest, all applicants will be informed of the outcome. The ESEH Summer school committee will be happy to advise the successful applicants on the call for participants.

NB: If no summer school is selected in the first round, or there is funding available for a second summer school in 2020, a second round of applications will be held in May 2020.

Deadline for 2nd round of applications: May 15, 2020

The ESEH Board and the ESEH Summer school committee will consider the applications in May/June 2020 and by June 15th at the latest, all applicants will be informed of the outcome.

The ESEH Summer school committee will be happy to advise the selected SSCH organizing committee regarding the call for participants.

Please apply by submitting the application form to Dr. Stefan Dorondel, chair of the ESEH Summer school committee, via e-mail stefan.dorondel[at]antropologia.ro
