Members of the ASEH Graduate Caucus and broader environmental history community are invited to participate in a Twitter conference one week before the 2019 American Society for Environmental History Annual Conference in Columbus, Ohio (April 10–14, 2019).
This Twitter conference will provide:

- Increased interaction with the public and other scholars.
- A chance for individuals unable to attend ASEH 2019 to participate in the conference.
Two types of presentations will be considered:
- ASEH Presenters are invited to condense their ASEH 2019 papers and posters into an 10 to 12 Tweet thread.
- Individuals unable to attend ASEH are welcome to pitch original research to be presented in an 10 to 12 Tweet thread.
* Thirty minutes per presenter (~15 minutes for presentation tweets/~15 minutes for questions and comments)
* Maximum 24 presenters will be accepted.
All Twitter presentations/threads will be made into Twitter moments, which will be retweeted during the ASEH meeting the following week, April 10-14th.
This Twitter conference will follow the format used in last year’s conference. For presentation guidelines, please reference this Presenter’s Guide, prepared for last year’s conference by Jessica DeWitt: jessicamdewitt.wordpress.com/2018/02/12/aseh2018tweets-presenters-guide/
