Call for Papers

Although the expectation is that most submissions will come in the form of in-progress pieces of writing, the organizers welcome submissions of alternative multi-media projects that utilize online tools to stimulate arguments about our relationship with local, regional, and transnational environments. All interested presenters must submit a CV, as well as a 300 word abstract outlining their topic, what format their contribution will take, and how their paper or project aims to broaden, illustrate or complicate the notion of ‘climate’ by September 18th, 2012.

The theme of climate is loosely defined, and may include perspectives on:

  • governance and policy history
  • environmental history and industry/industrialization
  • histories of activism or environmentalism
  • global climates, international relations and geopolitics
  • historical climatology
  • histories of ecology, geology or geophysics
  • primary source documents in climate history
  • climate regions (such as arctic or tropical)
  • new digital climates and virtual communities

Abstracts are to be sent directly to workshop co-chair Mike Commito at commitma@mcmaster.ca
