Environmental Humanities Northwest: Movements Workshop

This free one-day workshop will take place on Wednesday 16 June 2021 online via Zoom.

Environmental Humanities Northwest is a student-led group which will facilitate interdisciplinary discussions and scholarly networking via a one-day workshop. The event will consist of three themed presentation tables focusing on the theme Movements.

We would like to invite submissions from postgraduate and early career researchers to present on the theme of ‘movements’ within the environmental humanities. We welcome proposals for a range of presentation formats, but they should be no longer than 10 minutes. 

At a time when our movements are limited, this event provides an opportunity to bolster the lively research being produced in the field of environmental humanities, both in the UK and beyond. To this end, this workshop seeks to broaden the concept of movement as it intersects with environmental humanities.


Keynote: to be confirmed.


Suggested topics and questions might include, but are not limited to:

  • Migrations and flows
  • Movements by peoples, animals, or resources within and between environments/landscapes
  • Human, nonhuman, and multi-species relations
  • Walking / moving as methodology 
  • Social, racial, and environmental justice movements
  • Movement between scholarly disciplines
  • Reflections on movement / stasis within your own research


Please send paper abstracts of no more than 250 words, including title and keywords, as well as a short biography, to the organising committee at by 5 May 2021.

Organising committee: Chloé Duteil; John McEvoy; Victoria Shea (all University of Liverpool)
