Each year, CHE hosts a Place-Based Workshop that uses place to integrate transdisciplinary perspectives, both in education and research, in understanding human-environment interactions over time. CHE community members are welcome and encouraged to participate as members of the planning committee, please contact Shari Wilcox for more information on how to get involved.

About the Workshop

The Place-Based Workshop is one of CHE's most important annual activities, and fulfills a core requirement of the CHE certificate. Most of all, it is a wonderful opportunity for members of the CHE community to get to know each other on a much more personal basis while exploring environmental history themes via interdisciplinary conversations that are the reasons for the Center's existence.
