Call for panels: Fourth World Congress of Environmental History

The organisers of the Fourth World Congress of Environmental History are now calling for proposals for panels.

Before proposing a panel, please read about the congress theme and the rules below.

The panel and paper submission process has been designed to build an inclusive and robust conference program by encouraging conversation and collaboration in framing and formulating sessions. This is a two-stage process, first a call for panels and later a call for papers. All panels must be proposed via the online form and not by email. On the form, proposers will need to enter the following information:

  • the format of the proposal (panel, roundtable, or workshop – see details below);
  • the panel title;
  • names and email addresses of panel convenors (e.g. yourself and your co-convenor/s);
  • a very short abstract (blurb), under 300 characters;
  • a longer abstract (description), under 250 words.

You may also add names of any chairs/discussants, athough these can also be added subsequently to the process as and when, by emailing the admin team.

All proposed panels will be reviewed and evaluated by the Programme (e.g. Scientific) Committee, after which point the selected panels will be announced and the Call for Papers will be published (on 15 May 2023).
Proposals are due by 3 April 2023.
