Activity: Participating in or organising an eventWorkshop, seminarAcademic


In 2021, the Research School of Political History is devoting its inaugural session to the theme of environmental history . The opening of the academic year will raise the question of the added value of (political) history to environmental studies. First, it will discuss how environmental studies tie in with core concerns of political historians: democracy, legitimacy, policy-making and interest representation, including those beyond the polity, such as “future generations.” Second, it will explore the tension between environmental activism and academic (historical) studies.
