Call for papers / proposals
Oxford Symposium on Population, Migration, and the Environment Tags: symposium oxford 2016 population migration

21 and 22 March 2016 

Wadham College, Oxford, UK

We invite you to present a paper that encourages the exchange of interdisciplinary ideas about the main themes of the conference: world population increase, human migration, and environmental sustainability.  Alternatively, you may wish to attend as an observer or panel member.

The Symposium seeks to cover a broad agenda that includes disciplines such as economics, education, environmental studies, agriculture, law, political science, religion, and social studies. Topics for presentation may reach beyond these areas, and our website contains an extensive list of suggested topics.

Papers presented at the meeting will be subsequently peer-reviewed by external readers for possible inclusion in Symposium Books or sponsored academic journals.

CALL FOR PROPOSALS for chapter on Russian environmental history for volume on: “Science, Technology, the Environment, Engineering, and Medicine” / Rus Tags: Science Technology Environment Engineering Medicine


“Science, Technology, the Environment, Engineering, and Medicine” / Russia’s Great War & Revolution, 1914-1922

"Russia's Great War and Revolution, 1914-1922" (RGWR) is a decade-long, international, multidisciplinary effort generating new scholarly research focusing on Eurasia's "continuum of crisis" at the dawn of the twentieth century. The project's core participants comprise an international group of more than forty distinguished scholars. Since 2008 RGWR editors have been recruiting and selecting essays from scholars, academics, and exceptional graduate students from around the globe for publication and dissemination in a series of edited volumes being produced by Slavica Publishers.

To date, the two volumes addressing "Culture" and "The Empire and Nationalism at War” and the first book of the third volume “Home Front” have been published. Three additional “Home Front” books will appear by mid-2016.

RGWR Project Team members are interested in producing a stand-alone volume on "Science, Technology, the Environment, Engineering, and Medicine" (STEEM) and seek to identify individuals willing to contribute an original essay to the collection. Essays may involve any aspect of the history/culture of STEEM (broadly construed) across Russia and Eurasia between c. 1914-1922.

Younger scholars, including recent ABDs, are particularly encouraged to participate. Non-native English-speaking colleagues are welcome to submit their essays in their native language.

Deadline for the delivery of initial essay drafts is: 1 February 2017. Following the process of peer-review, revision, and editing the final volume is expected to appear by November 2018.
