Panel: It’s the End of the World as We Know It: Environmental Governance in the Anthropocene
I am looking to organize a panel for ASEH 2015 in Washington, D. C. that focuses on environments along the Canadian-American border. The conference theme focuses on national and international policy, and I am thinking of remaining somewhat connected to this theme. A working title for the panel could be "Environment and Policy along the Canadian-American Border: Opportunities and Challenges."
We are writing to remind authors and editors to submit nominations for the Melville prize, which is awarded for the best book in English, French, Spanish or Portuguese on Latin American Environmental History that is published anywhere during 2013. Melville defined environmental history as “the study of the mutual influences of social and natural processes.” The prize will go to the book that best fits that definition, while also considering sound scholarship, grace of style, and importance of the scholarly contribution as criteria for the award.
