EDGI’s Environmental Historians Action Collaborative (EHAC) is co-organizing a conference on the climate crisis to take place June 16-17, 2022. With the McNeil Center for Early American Studies, EHAC is currently soliciting proposals from scholars that trace the connections between the climate crisis and its roots in early American history. Through a 1-2 day workshop format, we will help create resources that historians, literary scholars, and others can use to integrate climate crisis history into their teaching and research. The workshop will take place in person at the McNeil Center at the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia as well as a satellite hub in Europe and at the University of Southern California’s Early Modern Studies Institute in Los Angeles.
The call for proposals from scholars interested in participating is due March 1, 2022. Please see the full CFP for details:CFP-Climate-2022
