Annual Cascadia Environmental History Collaborative Retreat


Thursday, September 22, 2016 - Sunday, September 25, 2016

Location: UW Pack Forest Research Station

Professors Linda Nash (University of Washington) and Marsha Weisiger (University of Oregon) co-founded the Cascadia Environmental History Collaborative (CEHC) in 2014. The group consists of graduate students and faculty from across the Pacific Northwest, including Oregon, Washington, and British Columbia. The CEHC retreat offers the opportunity to workshop papers and presentations, develop collaborations, and make connections with like-minded scholars in a relaxed, informal atmosphere.

Last year, in addition to paper workshops, the program included a screening of the film, "DamNation," a discussion of books useful in teaching environmental history, an "Anthropocene Slam: Cabinet of Curiosities" roundtable, and a soggy but relaxing hike in Mount Rainier National Park.
