Call for Expressions of Interest for new Editors

Environmental Humanities is currently seeking expressions of interest for two new Co-Editors to take over the leadership of the journal from Thom van Dooren (Sydney) and Elizabeth DeLoughrey (UCLA).

Environmental Humanities is an international, open-access, journal that is published by Duke University Press under a partnership with five universities. The journal was founded seven years ago (2012), and in this time has established itself as a leading venue for the publication of high-quality research in the emerging field of the environmental humanities. The journal prides itself on its commitment to publishing innovative interdisciplinary work by scholars of all career stages, from around the world. We have placed a particular emphasis on scholarship that brings environmental issues (broadly construed) into dialogue with the intersectionality of race, gender, indigeneity, and species, as well as ongoing processes of colonisation, globalisation, and extractivism.

Deadline for EOIs: 16 November 2018

The International Consortium for Environmental History Organizations (ICEHO) has put out a call for proposals to fund workshops that seek to foster or strengthen organizations on this discipline anywhere in the world.

Types of workshops:
- Regional meetings in places where there are no environmental history associations
- Regional meetings where the organization is yet not fully operational
- Workshops to develop and implement teaching programs on environmental history

Proposals will be considered in two deadlines: October 31st 2018 and February 28th 2019
