Historians make choices about the scale of their inquiry. They set parameters for their projects – temporal, geographical, social, archival – which shape their research strategies, their potential audiences, and their interpretations and arguments. Do you write history on a grand or intimate scale? Or both? We welcome paper and panel proposals on any geographical area, time period, or field of history, especially those relating to the theme of scale.
In the age of the Anthropocene, there has been an upsurge of environmental activism that takes law – and the courts – as its main instrument. Lawsuits related to climate change have been launched (or are underway) in the Philippines, Australia, France, the Netherlands, Belgium, Switzerland, and Norway, where activists and others are claiming that the state is in violation of its own penal code.
