New Special Interest Group: Food, Agriculture and Sustainability

Gabriella Petrick's picture

Dear H-Environment,

We are starting a new group for scholars interested in food, agriculture and sustainability. We would like this to be a group that taps into a number of different organizations and brings those working in a wide variety of sub-disciplines together.

This is an opportunity to network and meet others working in the field, discuss projects and set up panels and/or roundtables. Ultimately, we would like to create a more formal Special Interest Group (SIG) that can offer travel grants, prizes and perhaps scholarly publications.

We plan to launch the group in Chicago at ASEH 2017 with a lunch on Saturday. If you are interested in joining us please email me at or Gerard Fitzgerald at

We are looking forward to launching this new group and meeting everyone in Chicago.
