Based on our ongoing blog series on “Sustainable Academia” in collaboration with Historians for Future (H4F), we have organized an online session in which graduate students and early career scholars who are representatives of various environmental history-related groups and organizations will consider some of the individual, collective, and institutional practices that can help make academia more sustainable – in all its facets. We will reflect on the conditions of early-career environmental historians in Europe and beyond, introduce visions for the field, and suggest concrete action in order to build more inclusive and supportive academic environments.

Excited for Jessica DeWitt, Yaël Gagnepain, Elena Kochetkova, Renée Landell, Natascha Otoya, Sarah Qidwai, and Christopher Slaby to share their thoughts and observations in this session moderated by Elizabeth Hameeteman and Isabelle Schürch.

Join us on Wednesday, July 6 at 13:30-15:00 BST.
