Next Conference

ESEH 2023 Conference

The next, 12th, ESEH conference will take place in the city of Bern. The University of Bern has a long tradition in environmental and climate studies. The Institute of History and the Oeschger Centre for Climate Change Research are therefore proud to host to the 12th Conference of the ESEH.

Bern will be the first conference site since the establishment of the biennial ESEH conferences that is close to the Alps or to mountainous regions in general. Drawing from its closeness to mountainous regions Bern invites for a conference on «Mountains and Plains», a topic enabling approaches from various disciplines possible.

This paramount topic enables numerous approaches from various disciplines.

Call for Papers, Panels & Posters

The European Society for Environmental History (ESEH) is pleased to invite proposals for sessions, individual papers, roundtables, posters, and other – more experimental – forms of communicating scholarship for its 2023 biennial conference. The conference theme has been chosen in connection to Bern’s closeness to the Alps and it points to a much broader set of historiographical issues. The deadline for submissions is 31 October 2022.
