Next week, I will be participating on a roundtable at the Second World Congress of Environmental History in Guimarães, Portugal. Our roundtable is titled, “Beyond Texts and Archives: Experiments with New Sources and Methods in Environmental History” and it is scheduled for Tuesday, July 8, 2014 from 14:00-15:30 in CO-04 (CFPG). All the details about the roundtable can be found here.

I will be speaking about the use of online digital communications technologies in the global environmental history community. Based on my experiences as an editor and podcast producer for the Network in Canadian History and Environment, I will survey the use of online digital communications in environmental history from the advent of email listservs in the mid-1990s to the present.
