hosting our annual conference: call for proposals

The annual conference is one of the most important services that our organization provides to the field of environmental history. We invite proposals to host our annual conference for 2020 and 2021. Proposals should be submitted by ASEH members affiliated with a university, agency, or institution (proposals cannot come from or be initiated by Convention and Visitors Bureaus, though CVBs can provide info. to the ASEH member submitting  proposals). Hosting an ASEH conference involves forming a local arrangements team, working with a local hotel or conference facility, assisting in forming partnerships with local universities, agencies, and institutions, and helping the program committee form a theme for the conference. If you are interested, please contact Fritz Davis, chair of ASEH site selection committee, at frddavis@purdue.edu or Lisa Mighetto, ASEH director, at director@aseh.net.

Please note that the proposed local arrangements chair must reside in the city of the proposed conference. We will send you a copy of conference proposal guidelines and sample proposals from past conference. ASEH’s sustainability initiatives can be viewed at:

ASEH’s next three conferences will take place in Chicago (2017), Riverside, California (2018), and Columbus, Ohio (2019).

Deadline for proposals for 2020: September 1, 2017.
