The Women’s Environmental History Network (WEHN), founded in 2016, provides a welcoming space (both figuratively and literally) in which newcomers to environmental history have an opportunity to meet with and network with senior scholars in the field - and this has proven especially valuable for young women who are seeking role models as they chart their professional paths.
At the annual ASEH conferences, we sponsor a reception for all that celebrates the contributions of women and underrepresented groups to environmental history.
We support various projects that encourage representation of women's scholarship in journals and syllabi, and we are eager to sponsor workshops, book launches, and other events of interest. We encourage all projects that can help build diverse, lasting scholarly networks.
WEHN is affiliated with ASEH and maintains connections with ICEHO and other environmental history organizations and conferences.
WEHN seeks volunteers from all career stages to serve in various leadership positions. For more information, please visit the volunteer page.
