Des patrimoines pour l’histoire de l’écologie
Premières rencontres internationales du Réseau HISTECOLOGIA
Né cette année à l’initiative du Centre d’histoire culturelle des sociétés contemporaines (Université de Versailles Saint-Quentin) et du Musée du Vivant (AgroParisTech), le réseau international HISTECOLOGIA a pour vocation de grouper des chercheurs et des professionnels de la conservation et des archives qui s’intéressent à l’histoire de l’écologie.
Pour sa première manifestation, il a choisi de s’interroger sur les sources patrimoniales qui fondent les regards contemporains et orientent – ou orienteront dans un futur proche – les recherches sur une histoire de l’écologie à dimension résolument internationale.

10th Annual Graduate Conference
Call for Papers: http://www.h-net.org/announce/show.cgi?ID=180482
Changing Landscapes: The Intersections of Culture, Politics, and Environment in Latin America.
The Latin American and Caribbean Studies Center at SUNY Stony Brook invites presentation proposals for its annual graduate student conference to be held on April 8th, 2011.
Using the theme, “Changing Landscapes: The Intersections of Culture, Politics, and Environment in Latin America”, the conference seeks to open interdisciplinary discussions regarding environmental problems caused by ecological imbalance and natural disasters, economic and political cataclysms, and the resulting kafkian metamorphosis in the sphere of the imaginary. Since the 19th century nature has been understood as a static place meant to be transformed by the “civilizing action” of humans and this clear-cut divide between human and nature was mirrored in the work of scholars. This conference aims to explore the strengths and limits of traditional views while also foregrounding alternative interpretations.
· How have Latin American social and political institutions responded to ecological and geographic change in both moments of rupture and over the longue durée and how does geographical and ecological change play out along racial, political, and economic boundaries?
· What new and old moral geographies of space emerge resulting from the sweeping regional changes?
· How have efforts to adapt and alter the region’s climate and landscape led to unintended consequences and legacies?
· What roles have institutions of learning, science, and technology played in ecological change?
· How, and to what extent have changing landscapes been represented, contested, and explored by artists, writers, intellectuals, filmmakers, and performers?
· How have art and culture shaped and responded to changes in landscapes?
By stimulating cross-disciplinary discussions, the conference invites graduate students to examine and transcend the boundaries of their own academic fields. The multi-disciplinary nature of this conference also provides an opportunity for graduate students to interact with other scholars outside their traditional fields of study and academic specialties.
Presentation proposals should be 200 to 300 words in length, in either Spanish or English, and should include a cover page with name, academic affiliation and contact information. Panel proposals and alternative, non-paper presentations will also be given consideration.
Please submit proposals electronically to firstname.lastname@example.org

“Disaster! A Conference on Catastrophes in History.”
Page d’annonce : http://www.h-net.org/announce/show.cgi?ID=180533
The University of Delaware-Hagley Fellows invites scholars to join in a conversation about how disasters have shaped societies, cultures and environments since 1700. What makes a disaster a disaster? Who decides? How have they been interpreted? What are the consequences of disasters? What can historians gain by studying disasters? We particularly encourage proposals for papers that explore how disasters can inform the histories of business, technology, consumption, the environment, work, and everyday life.
The organizers welcome proposals by both graduate students and established scholars. Financial assistance for travel will be provided to all conference presenters.
Please email a 300-word abstract and a one-page CV to the Hagley Fellows at email@example.com by December 31, 2010. For more information: www.udel.edu/hagley.
