MILJØ2015-Norsk miljøforskning mot 2015

SAMFUNN: Bringing STS into Environmental History

Awarded: NOK 74,999

This application asks for partial support for an international workshop to be held Trondheim in August 2010 on the intersection of science and technology studies and environmental history. The conference co-conveners -- Dolly Jørgensen and Finn Arne Jørge nsen (both from Department of Interdisciplinary Studies, Norwegian University of Science & Technology) and Sara Pritchard (Department of Science & Technology Studies, Cornell) -- plan to bring together leading scholars working within and at the interface of these two fields to examine how insights from science and technology studies might help inform historical analyses of humanity's interactions with nonhuman nature. Moreover, such historical analysis has important implications for current environmental issues and policy-making.
