Call for Papers:
Yale Environmental Humanities Fall 2021 Graduate Symposium
Application Deadline: Sunday, Nov 28, 2021
Yale Environmental Humanities invites brief submissions from Yale graduate students for its fall research symposium. The symposium, to take place on the afternoon of Tuesday, December 14, will provide a forum for graduate students across the university to share work related to the environmental humanities.
The symposium seeks to showcase current research and foster exchange between students and faculty working across diverse disciplines. Participating students will share short (8-10 minute) presentations on their research projects, and participate on thematically organized panels with other graduate colleagues. Research projects may be article-length or other short-form projects, or a portion or overview of their dissertation.
The environmental humanities constitute a wide-ranging interdisciplinary field that brings together the humanities, the social sciences, and the natural sciences. Its goal is to integrate conversations in a variety of subfields including, but not limited to, environmental history, cultural geography, political ecology, science and technology studies, ecocriticism, and environmental anthropology. We encourage submissions from scholars of architecture, history of art, history of science and medicine, languages and literatures, anthropology, area studies, environmental studies and any other discipline or field investigating the intersections of nature and society. All graduate students who understand themselves to be working within this field are invited to submit statements of interest. We seek to be as inclusive as possible in accommodating a variety of approaches and topics.
Please use this Application Form to apply to participate in the symposium.
Please submit your materials as soon as possible, and no later than Sunday, November 28.
