The 2nd World Congress of Environmental History (WCEH) will be held from 7-14 July 2014. Submissions are now being received, at www.wceh2014.org for this important international meeting, to be hosted by the University of Minho and the International Council of Environmental History Organizations, in the attractive northern Portuguese city of Guimarães.

The conference language is English. The organizers welcome proposals from all disciplines that address any aspect of environmental history in any historical period.

DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSIONS: 9 September 2013 [extended]

Decisions will be communicated by the end of November, 2013.

We encourage proposals in the following formats: INDIVIDUAL PAPERS; PANELS; ROUNDTABLES; POSTERS; and ALTERNATIVE FORMS of presentation.
Panel proposals are welcome, but there will be no systemic disadvantage for individual paper proposals. Individuals will not generally be allowed to present more than one paper, or to participate in more than one roundtable on the program.

FURTHER DETAILS AND DETAILED INSTRUCTIONS ON SUBMISSION REQUIREMENTS CAN BE FOUND AT THE ‘SUBMISSION AND ACCEPTANCE OF PROPOSALS’ SECTION OF THE CONFERENCE WEBSITE, WHICH ALSO OFFERS A PORTAL FOR THE ELECTRONIC SUBMISSION OF ABSTRACTS ETC.
