CfP: III Meeting of REPORT(H)A - "Dynamics and Resilience in Socio-Environmental Systems" (University of Évora, March 28-30, 2019)

The Centre for Research in Political Science (CICP) and the Interdisciplinary Center for History, Culture and Societies (CIDEHUS) of the University of Évora are pleased to be hosting the III Meeting of the Portuguese Network of Environmental History, to be held in Évora, between 28 and 30 March 2019.
 
The meeting adopts, in an aggregating perspective, the title "Dynamics and Resilience in Socio-Environmental Systems". It welcomes panels, roundtables sessions, papers and posters that focus on the interception between the environment and human and non-human societies, inscribed in the history of climate and biodiversity. It focuses on the way human societies have resisted and adapted to environmental changes in the long term (desertification, afforestation/deforestation/reforestation), disasters (fires, famines and epidemics), environmental degradation (pollution), environmental changes caused by social dynamics (animal and plant migration, changes in land, water and sea uses, energy transitions, management of urban and industrial waste, new cultural landscapes) and how they have developed ways of managing resources and risks. In this perspective, contributions to the construction of knowledge and human representations about the natural world, conflicts of appropriation and environmental justice movements are also welcome.
 
PANELS AND ROUNDTABLE SESSIONS
Proposals for panels or roundtable sessions should be submitted with title and abstract (up to 500 words) in Portuguese and English. Each panel proposal must contain between 3 and 4 papers or 4 participants at a roundtable. Paper proposals should have title and abstract in both languages. All proposals should be submitted by the session organizer and should include author(s) name(s), affiliation(s), short CV(s), as well as their e-mail address(es), by 15th October 2018.
