The Women’s Environmental History Network (WEHN), founded in 2016, provides a welcoming space (both figuratively and literally) in which newcomers to environmental history have an opportunity to meet with and network with senior scholars in the field – and this has proven especially valuable for young women who are seeking role models as they chart their professional paths.

At the annual American Society for Environmental History conferences, we sponsor a reception for all that celebrates the contributions of women and underrepresented groups to environmental history.

We support various projects that encourage representation of women’s scholarship in journals and syllabi, and we are eager to sponsor workshops, book launches, and other events of interest. We encourage all projects that can help build diverse, lasting scholarly networks.

We hope you will visit our new website, where you can join WEHN, find out more about our projects, and volunteer to get involved: https://www.envhistwomen.com/
