Environmental History Conference
NATIONAL CONFERENCE ON ENVIRONMENTAL HISTORY TO BE HELD IN PORTLAND, OREGON, DOWNTOWN HILTON HOTEL, MARCH 10-13, 2010
The American Society for Environmental History will hold its annual conference in Portland, Oregon on March 10-13. This meeting will include more than 150 sessions on topics of local, national, and international interest and will feature an all-day workshop on the national parks, with a site visit to the historic Columbia River Highway and Columbia River Gorge.
The conference will open with a “floating seminar” on the Willamette River, which includes lunch and commentary by five regional scholars discussing salmon management, hazardous waste cleanup, environmental justice, and urban planning. Additional events include a plenary session on the Klamath River basin and a mini film festival. Field trips to Bonneville Dam, Mt. St. Helens, Fort Vancouver, and other locations will explore local environmental issues. An exhibit area with more than 50 booths will provide an opportunity to talk with university presses and local historical organizations. Jack Ohman, political cartoonist for The Oregonian, will serve as the evening banquet speaker, and the conference will close with a performance by the Portland State University jazz ensemble.
