Qu’est-ce que le RUCHE ?

Le RUCHE, Réseau Universitaire de Chercheurs  en Histoire Environnementale, est un réseau pluridisciplinaire  créé en septembre 2008 et constitué en association à but non lucratif au printemps 2009. Ses membres sont des personnes originaires de diverses universités et autres établissements d’enseignement supérieur ou secondaire, ou intéressé-e-s par l’histoire environnementale, et relèvent de disciplines variées.

L’objectif du RUCHE est de promouvoir le développement de l’histoire environnementale et de faciliter les échanges intellectuels entre les chercheurs en histoire environnementale, parfois isolés dans leurs  universités ou institutions respectives, par la tenue de séminaires, journées d’études, colloques, recherches et publications collectives, en facilitant la circulation des informations ou en faisant connaître les publications intéressantes

Le RUCHE est la branche francophone de l’ESEH, European Society for Environmental History

Le RUCHE fait partie du R2DS, Réseau de Recherche sur le Développement Soutenable de l’Île de France, qui le subventionne. Il est hébergé par l’Ecole des Hautes Etudes en Sciences Sociales (Paris) et organise des manifestations scientifiques dans diverses institutions universitaires à Paris et dans toute la France.

Fellowships 2011-2012, Rachel Carson Center, Munich



Rachel Carson Center Munich Fellowship Program


Call for Applications



The Rachel Carson Center for Environment and Society invites applications for its 2011-2012 class

of postdoctoral and senior fellows. The fellowship program, directed by Christof Mauch

(LMU Munich/Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität) and Helmuth Trischler (Deutsches Museum)

is designed to bring to Munich a cohort of excellent scholars who are working in the environmental

humanities and related disciplines.


The Center will award fellowships to scholars from around the globe and from a variety of disciplines.

Research and writing of applicants should preferably pertain to one (or more) of the topics

that will be at the core of the Center’s 2011-2012 research agenda:


Environmental Ethics, Politics, and Movements

Resource Use and Conservation

Transformation of Landscapes


Applications that deal with past and future topics of the Center will also be considered. They include:


Environmental Knowledge and Knowledge Societies

Natural Disasters and Cultures of Risk

Ecological Imperialism


The program is a writing fellowship program; the Carson Center does not sponsor field trips or archival research. Fellowships will usually be granted for periods of 6, 9 or 12 months but they can also be granted for 3 months or be broken up into individual 3 month periods. Fellows are expected to be in residence, to work on a major research project, attend the weekly Carson colloquium and present their research at the Center.

The Carson Center will pay for a replacement of the successful candidate at his or her home institution; alternatively it will pay a fellowship that is commensurate with experience and current employment.

The deadline for applications is March 15, 2011. Applications should include a cover letter, curriculum vitae, project description (3,000 words maximum), research schedule for the fellowship period, and the names of three scholars who might serve as references. While applicants may write in either English or German, we recommend that they use the language in which they are most proficient. They will be notified about the outcome of their application within approximately two months of the deadline given above. Please send applications (electronically only) in PDF or Word format via e-mail to CarsonCenter@lmu.de
