The American Society for Environmental History in Seattle

We are excited that the University of Washington is hosting the American Society for Environmental History (#ASEH2016) conference this year in Seattle, from March 30 through April 3, at the Westin Seattle. This year’s theme is Environmental History and Its Publics, and 2016 also marks the National Park Service’s centennial—there will be a great deal to discuss and celebrate!

The University of Washington Press will sponsor and host a workshop on publishing on Wednesday, March 30 from 2:00-5:00 p.m. Speakers will include Weyerhaeuser Environmental Books founding editor William Cronon of University of Wisconsin–Madison; current Weyerhaeuser Environmental Books series editor Paul Sutter of University of Colorado–Boulder; University of Washington Press director Nicole Mitchell; University of Washington Press senior acquisitions editor Regan Huff; Oxford University Press executive editor Susan Ferber; and more. Topics will include digital resources; current trends in environmental history series; pitching a book idea, and more.

An opening reception co-sponsored by University of Washington Press and Oxford University Press follows the publishing workshop from 6:00-8:00 p.m. at the Seattle Westin. Center for the Study of the Pacific Northwest director Linda Nash will provide welcoming remarks.
