American Society for Environmental History


The American Society for Environmental History (ASEH) was founded in 1977 with the purpose of increasing awareness of current environmental issues by creating a context based in historical understanding. Their mission is to promote:¬†“scholarship and teaching in environmental history, [support] the professional needs of its members, and connect its undertakings with larger communities. [The] organization advances a greater understanding of the history of human interaction with the rest of the natural world, fosters dialogue between humanistic scholarship, environmental science, and other disciplines, and supports global environmental history efforts that benefit the public as well as the general scholarly community. It promotes these activities through publication of the peer-reviewed journal Environmental History, annual conferences, scholarly awards and fellowships, online discussions, conversation with other professional societies, and public outreach.”
