RHN 43/2017 | Call

13-15 October 2017, University at Albany, History Department, Albany, NY, USA
Deadline for submissions: 1 May 2017

Workshop for the History of Environment, Agriculture, Technology, and Science
(WHEATS)

The University at Albany History Department is pleased to be hosting WHEATS in Fall 2017. The Workshop for the History of Environment, Agriculture, Technology, and Science (WHEATS) brings together graduate students studying the history of the environment, agriculture, science, or technology. WHEATS is open to submissions from any discipline with interests in these fields. Papers — generally 25-30 pages — are circulated in advance to all participants, and at the workshop papers receive feedback from participants and senior scholars through a roundtable discussion. This format is well suited for works in progress, and the workshop will have sessions on professional development as well as opportunities to meet and engage members of the broader CHE community.

Due to logistical constraints, papers must be in English.

The University at Albany will provide housing, food, and some funding to help defray travel costs.

Potential participants should submit a one-page abstract (200 words) and a short curriculum vitae by May 1, 2017. All submissions will be acknowledged by e-mail.  Applicants should note their year of graduate study or Ph.D. completion date. Accepted papers will be due September 10, 2017.
