Seeking Panelists for AHA 2022 Panel on Resource Extraction on the Gulf Coast

 

 

Greetings!

I am looking for 2 co-panelists, a chair, and a commenter for a panel for AHA 2022 in New Orleans (January 6-9, 2022). The panel looks to explore the cultures of marine resource extraction/exploitation on the Gulf Coast. My paper will look at the confrontation/friction between white and Vietnamese fishers on the Texas coast during the late 1970s and early 1980s. The panel topic can be tweaked as needed to accommodate other papers. 

Call for chapter submissions: Rewilding Urban Rivers

I am the editor of a collected volume that explores our historical and contemporary relationship to urban rivers in the American West. Many urban rivers are experiencing revitalization and “restoration” projects, yet these are essentially human creations or novel ecosystems. These projects raise many fundamental questions about our relationship to the natural world, such as: Are these urban rivers primarily valued for their recreation amenities?
