Implementing US Environmental Law, 1970 to the Present

Seeking Panelists for 2015 ASEH--Conceptual Landscapes and Imagined Geographies

Though it departs a bit from this year's theme, I'd like to form a panel that looks at, broadly speaking, the intersections of intellectual and environmental history.  How have environments, geographies, landscapes influenced (and been influenced by) ideologies, cultural discourses, and the history of ideas?

environmental humanities in the Boston area?

Does anyone know of any sort of interdisciplinary environmental humanities lecture series, seminar, discussion group, etc in the Boston area? I know of a few discipline-specific groups - environmental history seminars at the Mass Historical Society and MIT, env philosophy seminar (or is it a yearly symposium?) at BU, etc - but last I checked, nothing interdisciplinary in the humanities. Any suggestions would be much appreciated -

Thanks, Steve
