ASEH is excited to announce Environmental History Week 2021!


Environmental History Week is an international celebration of environmental history, organized by environmental historians of all stripes to foster scholarly collaboration, academic research, teaching and public awareness of environmental history.  Environmental History Week is April 19-26, 2021. 

Environmental History Week events can take many forms. In person, face-to-face events could be all-day mini-conferences; environmental history lectures on a campus or at a public library or museum; student presentations at a student research symposium; film series with audience discussions; field trips or tours, or hands-on projects in collaboration with non-profits in your area; or a teacher training program for local K-12, community college, or graduate students. Digital events could be virtual conferences conducted on an online, video conference platform; streamed films with online discussions; self-guided field trips; or a virtual museum exhibit. Programs for all audiences are welcome. If you have other ideas for events, please share them. 

Please promote your events with the hashtag #EHW2021.

Check back here for details on ASEH-sponsored events happening in your area, or sign up to create your own event! 

Guidelines for creating events: Be open. Be creative. Be green.
