Call for Submissions: Postcards for Unstable Times

The European Society for Environmental History (ESEH) now invites contributions for the second round of "Postcards for Unstable Times." In this project the Society explores alternative ways to showcase stories, environments, and landscapes from throughout Europe (and potentially beyond).
