Paradise on Fire: ASLE 2019 Conference
June 26-30, 2019
University of California Davis
Dear All, We are organizing a session for the next ESEH conference. You will find our proposal for this session below.
ESEH Conference – Tallinn 2019
I am putting together a panel proposal for ESEH (the European Society for Environmental History) in August 2019.
The panel will explore enviro-tech narratives in Ottoman history. So far we have two papers: one dealing with paper "technologies" and land theft and management in nineteenth-century Basra; and one looking at the combined role of local (human and animal) power and expertise and Western technology in the construction of Western Anatolian railways in the 1860s.
