CBM Seminar Series

Last changed: 18 May 2018

The idea of the CBM Seminar Series is to inspire an interdisciplinary discussion, aimed at both researchers and students with varying backgrounds. The seminars are held in the spring, and each occasion offers both a lecture and a discussion.

With the seminars, we want to stimulate an interesting interdisciplinary discussion that can move us forward. We hope that we will be able to highlight various contemporary environmental agendas, problematize them and learn more about why we think about and practice nature and nature conservation management in the way that we do.

Spring 2018:
Historical ecologySeminars
in Historical Ecology: An Exciting Future for the Past

There will be four seminars in the spring of 2018, held at SLU campus Ultuna. The seminars will be held in English. Following publication of Issues and concepts in historical ecology - The Past and Future of Landscapes and Regions, (Crumley, Westin, Lennartsson eds.) the seminars will employ historical ecology as an arena for exploring transdisciplinary work.
