Covid-19 seems to have changed our perception of time. In quarantine, days feel longer, while the year sometimes also seems to rush by without the usual markers of time, like holidays and family gatherings. While most of us are confined to our immediate surroundings, perhaps this has made us more perceptive to the (hi)stories unfolding around us and the places we call home. Where’s home for you? What’s happening in the place you consider home? What changes in the environment have you observed or perceived? What environmental (hi)story unfolds?
This session, organised by Historians for Future, explores the environmental (hi)stories of our home(s). By taking a different, microhistorical perspective, we like to raise awareness for what has been, and what we envision or hope for the places we consider home in the future.
