Call for Papers: Environmental History of Warfare in Eastern Europe

Type:  Call for Papers Date:  October 1, 2016 Though research on the environmental history of war has made major advances, we have had little success in studying East Europe as a region.  The 2017 European Society for Environmental History conference on 28 June – 2 July presents an ideal opportunity to make progress, since it will be hosted by our colleagues in Zagreb, Croatia.   I welcome proposals or suggestions for panels on East Europe, and especially its southern region.  One conference theme is contact among states, economic systems, cultures and religions.  New understandings of the environmental settings and consequences of wars in that region’s history would be an important contribution.  If you are interested to participate, please send a 250 word abstract and short CV to rptucker@umich.edu . For more information on the conference, see http://eseh.org/event/next-conference/ . The deadline for proposals is 1 October 2016.
