Place and Placelessness is a NiCHE sponsored unconference for graduate students in environmental history, historical geography and related disciplines. It is an opportunity to exchange ideas and go on a field trip without increasing your carbon footprint by flying to another city. How do we do this? Through the magic of the internet and a handy free program called Skype!
What: Place and Placelessness, the Un-Workshop in Environmental History
When: October 1-2, 2010
Where: Where ever your computer is
What you get: A free Skype headset!
The workshop is inspired by the NiCHE New Scholars virtual reading group. This group has been meeting since September 2009 to discuss papers, articles, and chapters in progress. Participants have come from across Canada and as far away as England and Japan.
