Academic visibility is important these days, for untenured early career scholars especially. Yet, activities such as presenting and conferences and publishing articles are at times difficult to reconcile with finishing a dissertation. ESEH-NEXTGATe created a central platform for PhD candidates in the field of environmental history to inform the larger research community about their work and their research interest: the ESEH Dissertation Database, linked to and accessible through the ESEH website.
With this dissertation database we hope to facilitate cooperation among early career scholars and encourage more senior scholars in the environmental humanities to co-publish or co-organize events with some of their younger colleagues.
We welcome not only abstracts of dissertations that are written strictly within environmental history but also interdisciplinary dissertational projects that examine aspects of environmental, technological, economic, political, and cultural history.
Even though European scholars are our main audience, the database is open to all environmental humanities scholars. With a broad, international scope, we hope to strengthen the ties between scholars from European, Asia, Africa, Australia, Latin and North America, and elsewhere.
