Critical Environmental History: Intersections of Environment and (Dis)ability

Laurel Daen's picture

We invite you to take part in the first in a new series of research seminars hosted by the European Society for Environmental History. The series is designed to focus on key elements of our discipline which address the challenges of working to disrupt power, generate resistance and pursue justice.

The first seminar in the series will address intersections of environment and (dis)ability. Featuring scholars presently working at that intersection, Dr Sara J. Grossman, Professor David M. Turner, and Dr Andy Flack, the seminar will engage with cutting edge research that addresses disability in the wider context of environmental history, before turning to a more activist conversation about the place and status of disability as a protected but vastly under-represented characteristic within our discipline and scholarly community. The speakers will discuss questions ranging from experiences of discrimination and exclusion to strategies for full inclusion of people with diverse abilities across the coming months and years. We hope that colleagues from across our discipline will take part in what is an urgent conversation.
