About the Symposium
Each year CHE's graduate students host a Symposium to highlight the diversity and depth of the intellectual approaches the CHE community brings together. This annual event provides a supportive environment for graduate students to share their work related to environmental and cultural change in the full sweep of human history.
The Symposium is a special part of CHE's annual programs because it encourages students to present research-in-progress, and to bring their insights into the interdisciplinary conversation that is the heart of CHE. Work on all geographic locations, time periods, and from all disciplines is welcome.
A typical CHE Graduate Symposium might feature anything from a new approach to climate modeling, a history of hard rock mining, a paper on indigenous forestry practices, an introduction to ecological poetry, a cultural history of sharks in America, or reflections on the politics of scale in Central Asia.
