This workshop aims to discuss, identify and evaluate ways in which social sciences and humanities can use memory studies to engage with the problems we encounter in the world today, and bridge the divide between academic disciplines, and academia and policy. We intend to publish the results of this workshop as an issue in RCC Perspectives, the in-house journal series of the Rachel Carson Center. RCC Perspectives is an open access publication for examining the interrelationship between environmental and social change.
The H-HistGeog network is a forum for geographers, historians, and all others who have an interest in the intricate relationship between space and time.
