Birth of ANEH 2 septembre 2014
The African Network of Environmental Humanities was established in 2014 to facilitate communications between scholars in Africa. Anyone researching environmental humanities in all or any of its many manifestations is welcome to join the e-mail list.
How to join: E-mail John Agbonifo (firstname.lastname@example.org).
To provide a means to communicate with each other and exchange information about forthcoming events and new publications in Africa and beyond.
To provide a portal with links to other organisations in Africa with interests in environmental humanities, and to provide a portal to Africa for international groups with interests in global environmental humanities.
Environmental humanity is the study of the interactions between people and nature in the past, and how they have changed with time. African Network of Environmental Humanities includes:
* The environmental history of Africa,
* Environmental humanities being done in Africa and other places
* Environmental humanities that compare Africa with other places
Environmental Humanities is a rich collection of inquiries into the transformation of the natural world by human action and the consequences for both nature and people. It takes nature as an actor in history as much as it takes people as actors in nature. It aims at a synthesis, although the weighting given to human or natural agency varies considerably between inquiries.
It overlaps many areas of the humanities, the sciences and the social sciences and draws in archeologists, foresters, geographers, historians and scientists of many sorts, for example. It includes or is closely related to fields such as agricultural history, forest history, garden history and historical climatology.
