Event description

Description

***This Event is for Postgraduate Students and Early Career Researchers in Humanities***

Hear three personal stories about how environmental history has shaped the work of academics in the field before working together in small groups to explore what environmental history can do for you and how it relates to your own research.

Every topic of historical research contains at least some elements of environmental history. This informal, introductory, postgraduate masterclass will guide you towards identifying ways in which an environmental history perspective might be able to enhance your own work.

Innumerable natural systems and resources, including water, non-human animals, minerals, stone, wood and the climate, have shaped and reshaped history as a result of rapidly changing ideas about and relationships with non-human natural elements of the planet.

Even if you don't want to pursue environmental history in relation to your own research project, you're more than welcome to come along to find out more about the sub-discipline and its energetic relationship with transnational history and with organisations beyond academia.

This event is open to all humanities postgraduate students and Early Career Researchers and will be delivered by Prof David Moon (University of York), Prof Matthew Kelly (Northumbria University) and Dr Leona Skelton (Northumbria University).
