About Environmental History Week
Environmental History Week is an international celebration of environmental history, organized by environmental historians of all stripes to foster scholarly collaboration, teaching and public engagement with environmental history. This year, Environmental History Week will emphasize public-facing environmental history events and activities.
Please join us by organizing an event in your area, and sending information to us so we can publicize it on the Environmental History Week events calendar on the ASEH.org website. You can also attend the ASEH Virtual Conference in the early April.
Environmental History Week 2023 is separate from the annual conference, ASEH 2023.
We hope you will join us for both!
Environmental History Week events can take many forms. In person, face-to-face events could be walking or biking tours of your community; hands-on projects in collaboration with non-profits in your area; environmental history lectures on a campus or at a public library or museum; or a film series.
Digital events are welcome, too, from online conferences to streamed films with online discussions; self-guided field trips; or a virtual museum exhibits. Got students creating storymaps or online exhibits? Share their work on the EHW2023 program, too! Already have an event planned or are planning an Earth Day event (April 22, 2023)?
Environmental History Week 2023 will provide rich opportunities for intellectual exchange, and for engaging the public, K-12 teachers, and scholars in adjacent fields. It complements the ASEH in-person conference in Boston March 22-26, 2023. We'd love to see you at both!
ASEH thanks AHA and NEH for their support of this program.
