Dear all,

it is a great pleasure to announce that registration is now open for the Environmental History Workshop 2020: Transformations. This two-day event will take place online, over the 7th and 8th of September. A full programme and means by which to register can be found here:

Our keynote lecture will be given by Dr Christienna D. Fryar, to take place after the first day’s parallel sessions on 7 September at 17:00 BST. 

In addition, we will commemorate the life and work of Prof Richard Grove, who passed away earlier this summer. Richard Grove was the the author of Green Imperialism: Colonial Expansion, Tropical Island Edens and the Origins of Environmentalism, 1600-1860, a classic in global environmental history, and mentor to countless students of environmental history here in the UK and around the world, including some of the participants of this year’s workshop. We will hear reflections by Rohan D’Souza (Kyoto University), Deepak Kumar (Jawaharlal Nehru University); and Mahesh Rangarajan (Ashoka University). This will take place at the start of our second day on 8 September at 12:00 BST.

Chris Pearson, Shirley Ye, Alice Harvey-Fishenden, and Dominic Berry
