CALL for Benelux students interested in the Environmental Humanities

BASCE, the Benelux Association for the Study of Culture and the Environment (https://beneluxenvironmentalhumanities.wordpress.com), is back! We are looking for Phd, RMA and MA students interested in joining a new BASCE events committee. The goal of the events committee is to bring together people interested in the Environmental Humanities -including fields like ecocriticism, environmental history, and environmental philosophy- as well as those working outside of academia on topics relevant to the Environmental Humanities.

We aim to create a team of students who will work together to organize an event in the Spring of 2021, and preferably stay on the committee to design a program with two or more events in the academic year 2021-2021. Candidates should ideally live in the Benelux or have a close link to the Benelux, and should have relevant experience in the Environmental Humanities. There will be a high degree of freedom to pursue formats and topics of your own interest.

If you’re interested in joining the BASCE events committee, please send a concise (informal) email outlining your relevant experience and motivating your interest to Tom Idema at t.j.idema@uu.nl no later than 4 December. Please note that these are unpaid positions.
