(Apologies for the extremely late notice – school’s out for summer)
I only recently joined the ASEH listserve so I realize this is coming at the last minute, but I would love to participate in the upcoming ASEH 2015 Conference in Washington, D.C.
River Cities: Historical and Contemporary
2015 Dumbarton Oaks Symposium, Garden and Landscape Studies
The dynamic relationships between cities and their rivers, a landscape of potentially critical adaptability and resilience, is the focus of the 2015 Garden and Landscape Studies Symposium at Dumbarton Oaks. Building on the emergence of urban humanities and urban landscape history, we propose to consider the urban river as a city-making landscape deserving of careful reading and analysis: past, present, and future.
I would like to instigate, organize, or join a panel for the ASEH 2015 Conference. I’m writing a book about the history of Vitamin D deficiency and rickets. Some of the more directly environmental themes my work embraces include:
· Race, geography and the built environment
· Competing environmental risks: natural and man-made
· Natural Food, Natural Health vs. industrialized health and industrialized food
· Biotechnological tools for escaping nature
