Members of the ASEH Graduate Caucus and broader environmental history community are invited to participate in an accompanying Twitter conference to happen one week before the American Society for Environmental History 2018 meeting in Riverside, California (March 14-18, 2018).


This Twitter Conference will provide:

– A chance for individuals unable to attend ASEH 2018 to participate in the conference.


Two Types of Presentations will be considered:

– ASEH Presenters are invited to condense their ASEH 2018 papers and posters into an 8 to 10 Tweet thread.

– Individuals unable to attend ASEH are welcome to pitch original research to be presented in an 8 to 10 Tweet thread.

* Thirty minutes per presenter (~15 minutes for presentation tweets/~15 minutes for questions and comments)

* Maximum 24 presenters will be accepted.


All Twitter presentations/threads will be made into Twitter moments, which will be retweeted during the ASEH meeting the following week, March 14-18th.


This Twitter conference will follow the model exemplified by the seminal Beyond 150: Telling Our Stories conference held this past August. Visit @Beyond150CA and #beyond150ca on Twitter or the conference website  for examples.
