First Baltic Conference on the Environmental Humanities and Social Sciences (BALTEHUMS)

 

October 8-9, 2018
The House of Nature, Faculty of Geography and Earth Sciences, University of Latvia
Jelgava Str. 1, Riga, Latvia

 

The interest in interdisciplinary cooperation between humanities, arts and social sciences in the study of environment has been constantly rising all over Europe during the last 20 years. This holds also true for the three Baltic countries Lithuania, Latvia, and Estonia.

First Baltic Conference on the Environmental Humanities and Social Sciences (BALTEHUMS) aims to bring together environment-inspired scholars from different disciplines (anthropology, arts, ecology, folkloristics, geography, history, literature, semiotics, psychology etc), in order to:

  • advance environmental topics within the humanities, arts and social sciences;
  • bring together researchers from different backgrounds and discuss common themes;
  • create a Baltic network of interdisciplinary studies on environment;
  • discover ways of developing further cooperation in research, teaching, and outreach.

In order to map the grounds of the emerging community, the conference is open to all topics that focus on environment in humanities, arts and social sciences: food, resources, landscape, pollution, water, recycling, power plants, representation of nature, environment and social movements, human-animal studies, environmental ethics etc. Under ‘environment’ we do not mean only ‘nature’, but also built environment and cultural and industrial spaces linked to non-human nature and natural resources at large.

The conference welcomes contributions from all scholars who work on environmental humanities, arts and social sciences of the Baltic region, independently of where they live and work. We also welcome those scholars who reside in the Baltics and are interested in the field but whose work focusses on some other geographic location.
