The Agency of Climatic and Environmental Factors in Mediterranean History

 Call for Papers – Seminar chaired by Dr Georg Christ –

The Agency of Climatic and Environmental Factors in Mediterranean History

The Haifa Center for Mediterranean History (HCMH) at the University of Haifa is pleased to host Dr Georg Christ from the University of Manchester. Christ is a distinguished scholar of the history of the Eastern Mediterranean, with interests in trade embargoes, trading diasporas, knowledge management and climate change and processes of adaption in the late Middle Ages.

On this occasion, Georg Christ will be chairing a methodological seminar in environmental history. The aim of the meeting is to adopt broad concepts of environment, climate and nonhuman agency in Mediterranean history. We wish to adjust the record on the cultural, commercial and political impact of the environment. Thus, to rebalance past-present understandings of the choices that might be made now in respect of renewable energy sources and coastal sustainability.

The seminar theme provides opportunities for young researchers to share their work with colleagues and researchers in adjoining fields.

We cordially invite young researchers from all the Israeli Universities (from MA thesis to early career PhDs) to suggest an assessment of the role of nature in the Mediterranean history, or the impact of human doings on the longue durée of maritime or coastline environmental change. The seminar welcomes papers on all aspects of humankind’s relationship with nature in all periods.

The seminar will take place at The University of Haifa's Younes and Soraya Nazarian Library, seminar room 232, Tuesday, 7th of January 2020, 10:00–15:30.

The seminar will include brief presentations (10 minutes) that will be followed by a roundtable discussion. Participants are invited to submit a short proposal in English (500 words) indicating the scope of their intended paper, plus one-page CV to Renard Gluzman [email protected]) before the 15th of December 2019.

Following the methodological seminar, 16:00–18:00, in Eshkol Tower, 29th floor, Georg Christ will give a public lecture on the theme: Portuguese ships in India and rotting pepper in Alexandria: A self-fulfilling news crisis? (1503–1505).

Participants in the seminar will be asked to attend the public lecture. Transportation and lunch will be covered by The University of Haifa.

With best wishes,

Renard Gluzman and Zur Shalev (organizers).
