American Society for Environmental History (ASEH) Panel on Environmental Diplomacy

I’m looking to put together a panel for ASEH (Washington DC, March 18-22, 2015) on environmental diplomacy. My current project places the fisheries of the northwest Atlantic in the context of American foreign relations during the years 1783-1871. I am particularly interested in how political actors, ranging from statesmen to fishermen, understood these fisheries as an environmental resource but also a vital part of American statecraft.

Seeking Panelists for ASEH 2015 – Water as a Proxy for Environmental Activism and Protest

We are putting together a panel on water as a proxy for environmental activism and protest. We are looking for co-panelists interested in bringing some creativity to the table. Ideas include telling the history from the perspective of the water; or designing a panel with more flow between presenters by connecting the waterways which we are discussing. We can work out the details of the panel and the exact type of creative approach once we hear back from interested scholars.
