A network of interdisciplinary scholars studying past climate change
Last week in Munich, the International Society for Historical Climatology and Climate History was formally registered and held its first official board meeting during the European Society for Environmental History biennial conference (full program here). The new society also inducted its first honorary members: Emmanuel Le Roy Ladurie, Christian Pfister, and Geoffrey Parker. The board discussed links with journals, a publication series, and a projected conference for 2014. The society will open formal membership soon. For now, climatehistorynetwork.com will host the society’s webpage and announcements.
