ESEH - European Society for Environmental History

The European Society for Environmental History promotes the study of environmental history in all academic disciplines and encourages anyone who has an interest in the field to join and become involved.

ESEH aims to:

  • encourage the study of European environmental history in a comparative perspective;
  • foster communication among environmental historians across Europe, and with colleagues elsewhere;
  • promote the further institutional development of environmental history within secondary and tertiary education;
  • promote the research and use of environmental history in academic programmes;
  • strengthen the crucial link between environmental history, all policy-making, and the general public.

In order to achieve these goals ESEH has developed a range of activities since its inception in 1999. The society publishes a newsletter, ESEH Notepad, which is quarterly published in the journal Environment and History, published by White Horse Press in Cambridge.

Along with the American Society for Environmental History, ESEH co-ordinates H-Environment, an internet discussion forum that keeps subscribers posted about events and issues related to the field.
